IVÁN CALVIÑO

'Even though I’ve spent a considerable part of 50 years shuttling between Madrid, my adoptive city, and the rest of the world, I’m still very much a Galician and I hold my native Coruña very close to my heart. While working for important multinational firms, I have enjoyed a vibrant career with barely a moment’s rest, opening fabulous hotels around the world, from the sun-drenched beaches of Brazil or Los Cabos, in Mexico, to the freezing plateaus of Central Asia, from Spain to Germany, from Greece to the Czech Republic, from Portugal to Switzerland.

I finished my master studies in Architecture in 1997. This training has been indispensable for the intense work I’ve been doing for the past 25 years as a project director in the international arena. Managing multicultural teams has always motivated me. I love quality work and finding solutions for new and unexpected challenges, wherever they may occur. I like sharing our clients’ visions and I’m always totally committed to the fulfilment of their goals.

I love cinema, travel, discovering the world and living unforgettable experiences in the best hotels of the world. I am also passionate about languages, which have considerably helped me foster lasting personal and professional relationships over time.
