The 2014 Ecole Htelire de Lausanne (EHL) Annual Alumni Awards held at EHLs gastronomic restaurant Le Berceau des Sens has presented its Lifetime Achievement Award to Bernhard Bohnenberger, president of Six Senses Hotels Resorts Spas.

The award honors the alumnus whose remarkable career is an example and inspiration for the network members around the world. Bernhards achievements and professional path exemplify the ambitions, which EHL students aspire to for their own future, and serve as a model to the entire Alumni network.

In announcing the award, Michel Rochat, general director of Ecole Htelire de Lausanne said, This is a great opportunity to recognize the great achievements of EHLs graduates around the world.

In accepting the award, Bernhard said, I feel honored and most proud to receive this award and would like to thank all those who have supported me. EHL has been key to my formation and the basis of my career. EHL is unique in the terms of just the right balance between practical and theoretical education; the rich student diversity and philosophy of savoir-tre. The network of the Anciens (alumni) of EHL is another fantastic asset. Beyond loyalty and hard work the strong foundation which I built while in school has allowed me to contribute in a meaningful and often unconventional manner throughout my career.

Bernhard, EHL graduate of 1986, joined the company that would become Six Senses in 1991 as development director and was appointed managing director in January 1996, and then president in July 2011.

Prior to joining Six Senses, Bernhards hotel operation experience includes the Hilton in Geneva, the Marco Polo Group in Hong Kong, Hotel Vier Jahreszeiten in Munich, Hotel Baur au Lac in Zurich and the Peninsula Hong Kong.
