Sven Cepon as Sheraton Maldives’ New Executive Chef
Maldives Promotion House – One of the two Starwood Hotels’ Maldives resorts, Sheraton Maldives Full Moon Resort & Spa recently assigned Mr. Sven Cepon as their Executive Chef. Cepon has already worked at both the Starwood properties and is an excellent chef.
Born in Oberhausen of Germany, Sven began his career at home and served with a number of 5 star hotels in Cyprus and Switzerland for over 5 years before moving to the Maldives in 2008 as Executive Sous Chef for the W Retreat & Spa Maldives. After having served W Maldives for nearly 2 years, Sven joined Sheraton Maldives in 2010.
Citing the promotion, Sven expressed his excitement saying that he is very happy to get the opportunity to take over the position as Executive Chef for Sheraton Maldives and that he is looking forward to working with the highly creative and motivated culinary team in his new capacity.
His promotion comes after the departure of Executive Chef, Mr. Garth Welsh who transferred to The Westin Kuala Lumpur, after having completed his assignment at the Sheraton Maldives.
Sven continued on to state that he was very much looking forward to continuing the momentum left behind by former Executive Chef Garth Welsh as he refreshes the dining options currently available and introduces new concepts with the culinary team at Sheraton Maldives.
This is the second key food and beverage appointment by Sheraton Maldives. Recently, Sheraton announced the appointment of Mr. Moon Kang as Executive Assistant Manager of Food & Beverage.
