The Return of Our Best Dressed Man

We are ecstatic to inform our meetings and events clients that a familiar face to many has returned to the Renaissance team. Hasitha Indraratne has filled the role of Banquet Manager. Going forward he will be the one to oversee all meetings and events that happen at the Renaissance. 

Known to many as the best dressed man in the hotel, Hasitha orignates from Sri Lanka and  started out more in the travel part of the industry as a flight attendant. Here he became passionate about the hospitality industry and decided to study it formally. To do this he moved to Toronto and took hospitality management for 3 years. 

Like so many in the industry he started at the bottom as a bell person at Trump International Hotel and Tower in Toronto. He worked his way up the ranks quickly to a night supervisor.

He joined the Renaissance Edmonton Hotel in 2015 May as a Night Manager and then moved to days as an assistant front office manager then the in-house black coat program (internal training program) for 1 year in Banquets and Style (commonly known as housekeeping). He just came back to us after performing a short stint at the Courtyard Marriott in West Edmonton as operations Manager to learn more and further his development. 

Welcome back Hasitha! We know our clients are in the best hands possible!
