It's easy to understand why Mattheos Georgiou, whom everyone just calls "Aki," pulls the strings as director of the Andaz Hotel München at Schwabinger Tor. He comes across as youthful and experienced, informal and yet authoritative. He is friendly, open-minded and has an engaging manner. You have the feeling you know him, even if you don't. Aki wears a jacket and sneakers.
The Greek-born hotel manager, who has worked for Hyatt Hotels & Resorts in Cologne, Dubai, Moscow, Hong Kong and Tokyo, is himself a prime example of an urban nomad and perfectly embodies the concept of the luxury lifestyle hotel. Tolerant, cosmopolitan, modern, culturally affine, local and at the same time international.
