Cape Town, 14 March 2018: Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris has announced the appointment of Mark Wernich as general manager of its luxurious South African property, Taj Cape Town. All Taj hotels are famed for their unique architecture, exquisite locations as well as their unwavering ‘Tajness’ – a combination of personally curated luxury and service that sets Taj hotels apart from all others.

Puneet Chhatwal, CEO of Taj Hotels Palaces Resorts Safaris, says Wernich offers the perfect blend of business acumen and exceptional leadership skills. “We are confident he is the right person to take Taj Cape Town forward and are excited to see how he evolves its already strong offering. His depth of experience, honed over a stellar career spanning 25 years, will bring immeasurable value to our special Cape Town hotel.”

His 25 years of industry experience encompasses luxury resort and city hotel management across South Africa, new property launches, marketing, distribution and food and beverage.  Born in Cape Town, Wernich holds a diploma in Hotel, Catering and Institutional Management from the Cape Town Hotel School.

Wernich says, “Taj Cape Town is perhaps the most unique and intriguing hotel in Cape Town. It is a melting pot of history and contemporary, luxury and unpretentious comfort, fine dining and hearty fare. It’s location on St George’s Mall is unrivalled and makes it a gateway to the city’s thriving pedestrian district. I look forward to working with Taj Cape Town’s team of consummate professionals to unlock the hotel’s fullest potential as a place to stay, a wedding and conference venue, a fine dining establishment, a world-class spa, an elegant cocktail bar and so much more.”

Taj Cape Town is one of the hotels within the iconic Taj group.
