Charl Campher, General Manager at the Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club
A new General Manager has been appointed to manage the well known family resort on the banks of the Vaal River: Riviera on Vaal Hotel & Country Club.
Charl Campher joined the team at the Riviera on Vaal on 1 April 2013. He has been appointed as General Manager after proving his skills and expertise in the industry locally and internationally.
After studying through the Institute of Hotel and Tourism Management, associated with the Hotelfachschule Belvoir Park of Zurich, Switzerland, Campher kicked off his career locally, as well as internationally. His experience in the industry comes from working at establishments like the Mount Grace in Magaliesberg and the Metropolitan Beach Hotel in Dubai. He broadened his horizons even further by taking up positions on American Cruise Lines working in North and South America,where after he returned to South Africa.With Campher being a member of the Chain des Rottiseurs and with his 19 years experience in the hotel industry, it is only natural to be excited about welcoming him back under the Riviera on Vaal’s management.
Charl Campher is a man who values family and genuine friends – two very important values at the Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club. As child he visited the Riviera on Vaal with his family on numerous occasions, thinking that it would be wonderful to someday have the opportunity to work in such a beautiful environment. After being married to his lovely wife, Willene, (also from the Vaal Triangle) for 7 years now, his dream has finally come true. With hobbies like cooking for friends and gardening, Riviera on Vaal’s guests will see that the once student has now become the master.
With the hospitality industry being one of the most challenging industries to work in, he understands the importance of constantly focusing on set goals and as he rightly says: “Honesty is always the best policy.” He describes his management style as very hands on and labels himself as a perfectionist. His strictness with regards to procedures and training will form an important part of the new management system as he believes one needs to apply self discipline to ensure that the highest quality of guest satisfaction is maintained and achieved at all times.
“Teamwork is of utmost importance,” says Campher. “The Riviera on Vaal Hotel is a unique property. Day to day running of the Hotel will be monitored to access the specific goals pertaining to the property. No compromise will be made when it comes to quality and service.” With the slogan, special experiences for special people, representing the Resort, Charl Campher says he would like the Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club to be the name on everyone’s lips.
The Riviera on Vaal Hotel and Country Club would like to welcome Charl Campher back in his new position and look forward to his input in assisting this property to grow from strength to strength.
