She stands to rebuild the reputation of Carcosa Seri Negara, putting into practice her years of experience working with Kempinski Hotels & Resorts as well as Starwood in key European cities such as Munich and Paris.

Ms Petzold-Beck graduated from New York’s Cornell University with a Bachelor of Science in Hotel and Restaurant Administration. Besides English, she is fluent in German, Spanish, French and able to understand Italian and Dutch.
