GHM has appointed Alain Bachmann has General Manager of its first hotel in Switzerland, The Chedi Andermatt.

After years abroad, honing his management skills at the Peninsula Chicago, the Mandarin Oriental Washington D.C. and the Ritz-Carlton Moscow, Bachmann returned to his Swiss roots with a three-year management role at the Grand Hotel Park in Gstaad, one of the top hotels in Switzerland.

He launched his professional life in the 1980s in banking before moving into the world of marketing and then on to hospitality in the mid-90s. His education includes studies at both the Cornell Hotel Management School in the United States and Les Roches International School of Hotel Management in Switzerland.

It is an honour for me to be a part of this milestone for GHM, as well as the hospitality landscape in Switzerland. The Chedi Andermatt will not only raise the profile of the destination, but also up the ante for the standards for luxury, said Bachmann.

At The Chedi Andermatt, Bachmann takes charge of GHMs first Alpine resort and the latest design by renowned architect Jean-Michel Gathy of Denniston International Architects and Planners.

The 106-room hotel features two gourmet restaurants, an indoor and outdoor swimming pool, a spa and wellness centre and one of Switzerlands most compelling ski experiences.

Set at an altitude of 1,440 metres between the peaks of Gemsstock and Ntschen, The Chedi lies within walking distance of Andermatts picturesque old town in the majestic Lepontine Alps.

The hotel is a 45-minute drive from Lucerne, 90 minutes from Zurich, and two hours by train from Milan.
