Veteran hotelier Jeffrey A. Lesker is general manager of the Radisson St Martin Resort, Marina & Spa. The 18-acre, luxury resort is located at Anse Marcel, one of the best-preserved and most secluded coves on the French side of St Martin, on the site of the former L’Habitation de Lonvilliers Resort. The landmark, oceanfront resort was originally home to Le Meridian resort.

Lesker is well known throughout the Caribbean hospitality industry from his most recent post as general manager of the Radisson Aruba Resort, Casino & Spa, a AAA Four Diamond® Award winner and the hotel group’s flagship property.

“We are delighted to have a proven executive of Jeff’s stature serving as general manager for what will surely become another showcase resort in the Caribbean,” said Bjørn Gullaksen, executive vice president and brand leader of Carlson Hotels Worldwide Managed Hotels & Resorts. “Jeff’s passion and hospitality industry expertise is evident in every endeavor he undertakes and we look forward to his continued leadership.”

A 25-year industry veteran, Lesker served as general manager of Radisson Aruba since 1998. Prior to joining Radisson, he was general manager of various Wyndham Hotels & Resorts properties in the Caribbean, U.S. and Canada, including Wyndham Aruba and Wyndham Palm Springs, CA.

Jeff has been in St Martin for three years overseeing the transformation of the resort which has undergone an $80 million transformation. The ocean-front luxury property boasts 63 suites and 189 guestrooms; a signature beachfront restaurant with al fresco dining; casual, market-style eatery; lobby tapas bar; zero-entry infinity pool; full-service spa and fitness center; 7,500 square feet of meeting space and 150-slip marina.
