Les Clefs d’Or (the Golden Keys), the professional association of hotel concierges with its roots dating back to 1929, welcomed three new members on April, from the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo, taking the iconic luxury hotel’s total to seven members of this elite group.

Discreet yet with a strong presence – like those who wear them on the lapel of their uniform. Two little crossed keys, proudly worn by Thomas Testa Viac, Sasha Ceruti and Matthieu Ghibo, who recently became the latest recipients of this prestigious distinction. “Earning the Clefs d’Or is a real challenge,” says Alexis Levasseur, Head Concierge at the Hôtel de Paris Monte-Carlo and himself a member of the ultra-select club. “All three have invested a great deal of time and effort over the past two years to improve their skills, become local experts and ambassadors of their region, and expand their professional network. When you’re a concierge, especially in a hotel as legendary as ours, you want to be up there with the best.” Matthieu (37), Sasha (30) and Thomas (29) started out at the Hôtel de Paris as valet parking attendants and porters, before working their way up through the ranks over the years: “They really fell in love with the job and gave it their all to get to where they are today,” adds Alexis. “Plus, they have what it takes: excellent communication skills, tact and diplomacy, a certain composure to deal with stress, and the ability to respond quickly to an infinite variety of guests’ requests, from the everyday to the extraordinary.
