Damien FELIX


En résumé

De nombreux contacts, prolongés, avec différentes cultures et modes de pensées, ont formé mon caractère : créatif, discret, observateur et ouvert d’esprit.

De plus, mon sens de la diplomatie et de l’hospitalité m’ont toujours permis de lier rapidement des relations de confiance avec mes interlocuteurs.

De ces qualités est née une passion : l’hôtellerie.

Je suis à la recherche d'un poste sur Paris, n'hésitez pas à me contacter!
