“Irene has shown her exceptional skills and ability to work as part of a team, as well as inspire her associates. Our company is delighted, not only to see her evolving as a senior executive within the Electra family, but also to have one of the few hotels in the country with a woman in its leadership, especially at a time when gender balance in the working environment is considered of prime importance,” the company said.
