Carmine Iommazzo has been appointed Director of Hospitality Operations at MacNaughton Hospitality.

MacNaughton Hospitality has appointed Carmine Iommazzo as Director of Hospitality Operations, effective May 21. Carmine’s new role at MacNaughton, a family-owned business that specializes in real estate and hospitality investment, development, and management, will see him overseeing three hotels on Waikiki Beach in Oahu: Waikiki Malia, Hotel Renew, and Lotus Honolulu at Diamond Head Hotel.

Iommazzo has worked in the hospitality industry for a considerable amount of time on three continents, spending almost 20 years in Hawaii. Iommazzo, an Australian native, is a graduate of the country’s International College of Hotel Management. He started his career in hospitality in Hawaii and Southern California, where he held leadership positions at several hotels.

Prior to rising to the position of leader at the Sheraton San Diego Hotel & Marina, The Westin Maui Resort & Spa, and The Kahala Hotel & Resort in Honolulu, Iommazzo began his career in the food and beverage division of the Kapalua Bay Hotel in Maui. At The Makena Beach & Golf Resort in Maui, where he successfully oversaw the resort’s repositioning and rebranding following a $33 million USD renovation of the hotel and golf course, he held his first general manager position. After that, he went back to work as general manager at The Kahala Hotel. Under his leadership, the hotel’s Tripadvisor rating went from #14 to #3 in Honolulu, largely because of Iommazzo’s emphasis on standards and training for service.

He was in charge of the hotel’s construction, design, and opening during his time at The Westin Anaheim Resort. The hotel has 48,000 square feet of meeting space. By taking the initiative to work with the Convention Center, the local Visitors Bureau, and the global and national sales teams at Marriott, he made it possible for the hotel to open with $20 million in confirmed group business on the books. Following that, he was employed as Managing Director at KNORESOL Hospitality Consulting & Project Management in Irvine, California, before serving as General Manager of the Kimpton Alma in San Diego for the last two years.

Iommazzo will take on a leadership position at MacNaughton Hospitality, collaborating with the general managers of the three hotels on Oahu: Sheryl Tsugawa, GM of Waikiki Mali; Julie Arigo, GM of Lotus Honolulu at Diamond Head Hotel; and Rena Agngarayngay, GM of Hotel Renew.
