Assistant to the Director of Operations of the Shangri-La Hotel, Paris, Thomas Laborde is a graduate of the Luxury Hotelschool." Working for this prestigious Palace is a source of great pride because it is an exceptional hotel in which each employee is at the search for excellence. The customer is at the center of our attention and we do everything we can, with passion, to provide them with a unique experience. The luxury hotel of tomorrow will be, in my opinion, a hotel where the concept of service will be even more marked. Customer expectations will be higher than today: we will have to innovate and surround ourselves with the most passionate employees."

"My missions are diverse and require strong versatility.
