2011 begins with the icing on the cake for maison mk, i.e. our new manager Estelle de MIrbeck! Estelle joined as our new client manager about a month ago & has made a great start at the riad. Her background...she is French, was born in Baghdad (how cool is that !), grew up in Morocco & all over Africa, did her degree in Paris & her Masters in Boston. She started work at Hermes in Paris, then with the shipping industry in Mauritania, & then found her niche working in the hotel/restaurant business for the last five years in Morocco. She is tri-lingual (French, English, & Spanish) and its a real pleasure to have her running the riad.
Pauline, our previous client manager for 2 years, has now headed back last to France with her newly created family to run a remote mountain hotel in the middle of the French countryside - it will be a little different from the bustling Marrakech medina !
