We are very excited about these appointments as we know that both professionals will make important and necessary contributions to the continued development of these properties, helping them achieve their maximum potential while contributing to the growth of the tourism industry in Puerto Rico,” said Ghaffar.

Miguel Rivera, who had previously excelled as a worker in multiple hotels in The Condado Collection will now work exclusively for La Concha Resort, where he previously held the position of Hotel Manager for seven years until 2018. Later, he served as Hotel Manager at the Condado Vanderbilt, then as Operations Manager for the trio of hotels until recently accepting the challenges that come with his new position:

“I have worked with La Concha Resort since 2011 and feel honored with the trust they place in me to take charge of this iconic hotel through a position as important as General Manager. This property is famous for its perfect balance of sophistication and fun, and we are ready at this time to elevate the experiences of both our guests and local visitors with energy and innovation,” said Mike Rivera.

He worked at MGM Grand and most recently as Operations Director at the famous Cosmopolitan, where he was responsible for increasing retention, productivity, and employee satisfaction with excellent results. 

“It’s with great excitement and commitment that I join the team at The Condado Collection as the new General Manager of Condado Ocean Club, an oceanfront oasis in the modern heart of a city that’s in constant motion. I feel also a great responsibility to promote all the richness that Puerto Rico, my new home, offers as a world-class tourism destination,” he expressed.
