NUSTAR Resort, a premier 5-star integrated resort in Cebu, Philippines, has named Paolo Campillo as its general manager.
Building decades of professional experience across different continents, Campillo has held numerous positions in distinguished properties.
He makes a remarkable distinction as he leads the opening of Fili, the Philippines’ first 5-star authentic Filipino hospitality brand, bringing his deep exposure in diverse hospitality cultures and efficient management skills in all aspects of hotel operations.
Campillo brings close to 30 years of experience in the hospitality industry, where he worked for Starwood Hotels & Resorts, Shangri- La Hotels & Resorts, and Pan Pacific Hotels and Resorts.
