Criteria for the award win included Erwin and his team exceeding a range of business targets, which would be seen by many as a particularly challenging feat for any hotel in Ireland in recent years. Team leadership and engagement were also central to the awards and Erwin was specifically commended in these areas.

“This is an incredible moment for the team at Hilton Dublin,” said Erwin Verhoog. “To have been selected from so many hotels and general managers across Europe is incredible and illustrates that Irish businesses can compete and excel at every level.”

Simon Vincent, Area President, Europe, Hilton Worldwide, said: “These awards recognise the exceptional service and performance of our hotels across Europe and the competition this year was particularly tough. We have seen some outstanding results at key hotels across the region, even in these more difficult times. We are delighted to award Erwin Verhoog of Hilton Dublin the General Manager of the Year Award, it is a fantastic achievement and a testament to the hard work and commitment of his team.”

Awarded annually to the top performing hotels in Hilton Worldwide’s portfolio of six brands in Europe, the honour of General Manager of the Year recognises and celebrates the hotel manager that has achieved the most outstanding levels of guest satisfaction and business performance in Europe.
