Del Mar CA— L’Auberge Del Mar, A Destination Hotel, has named Shaun Beucler as general manager of the 120-room coastal property in the heart of Del Mar Village. Beucler replaces Michael J. Slosser who was recently promoted to vice president & area managing director overseeing Town and Country Resort & Convention Center, L’Auberge Del Mar, and Paradise Point Resort & Spa. Beucler takes the reins as this San Diego retreat, with a star-studded past and reputation as one of the finest hotels in the region, celebrates its 25th anniversary.
“Shaun will do an outstanding job leading the team at L’Auberge Del Mar,” says Slosser. “His years of experience working with luxury properties that deliver a high level of service while achieving superior financial results will no doubt help the hotel continue to flourish for years to come.”
A 13-year veteran of Ritz-Carlton hotels, Beucler most recently served as hotel manager for the newly opened Ritz-Carlton Rancho Mirage, Calif. He was a member of the property’s pre-opening team and helped to shape all aspects of the resort’s design and guest experience. Prior to Rancho Mirage, Beucler held similar posts at Ritz-Carlton San Francisco, Calif. and Ritz-Carlton Dove Mountain, Ariz. His early years were spent primarily at the Ritz-Carlton Naples Beach Resort, Fla. where he worked his way up from food and beverage supervisor. In 2003, Beucler was a recipient of Ritz-Carlton’s 5 Star Leader of the Quarter and Leader of the Year awards.
Beucler is a graduate of the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, N.Y., with a degree in Hospitality Management. He and his wife Jennifer are excited to return to the coast and be a part of the Del Mar Community.
