Ivan Rivier - General Director

Winning Ivan Rivier for Lausanne Palace back in November 2016 has proved to be a real stroke of luck.

Having spent his entire career in the hospitality industry, Ivan Rivier knows better than anyone how to run a first-class hotel and what the key aspects of making it a success are. His secret? Pay attention to those around you – to those who work hard every day to create hotel excellence.

Savoir-être & Savoir-faire are the pillars of Ivan Rivier’s work ethic.

Values that resonate with Lausanne Palace, where we strive to make everyone feel at home!
