Juan Mercadante has taken up the reins as general manager of Hyatt Regency Phnom Penh, one of the city's newest luxury properties.

The well-travelled Mexican, who takes the lead as general manager at the property this August, has overseen a succession of projects with Hyatt including rebranding, deflagging and pre-opening properties.

“In my tenure with Hyatt, I’ve had the privilege of working in five different continents," he said. “Each role has been a unique experience that has contributed to my knowledge and skills to become a better leader.”

Over the decades, he rose through the room and management ranks at Hyatt Regency Cancun Mexico, Hyatt Regency Almaty Kazakhstan, Hyatt Regency London - The Churchill and Hyatt Regency Dubai, and Galleria Residence.

In 2012, he returned to his hometown to join Hyatt Regency Mexico City as a hotel manager before rising up the ranks as a pre-opening general manager at Grand Hyatt Playa Del Carmen Resort, which was the first Grand Hyatt brand in Mexico. Most recently he was the pre-opening general manager at the first Andaz brand in South Korea.
