VERO BEACH — Kimpton Vero Beach Hotel & Spa is pleased to announce the recent appointment of Oscar Fontana as general manager of the intimate, luxury oceanfront hotel along Florida’s Treasure Coast.
Fontana brings more than 20 years of industry experience and most recently held the role of general manager of The Kimpton EPIC Hotel in Miami, the brand’s flagship property in Florida. His background includes roles leading other luxury and lifestyle hotels in the U.S. and Caribbean.
“I am thrilled for the opportunity to take the helm of this extraordinary, award-winning property that is a favorite among discerning travelers and the local community alike,” said Oscar Fontana. “It is my goal to motivate our team members and connect with every guest as they arrive to bring the distinctive experience that only Kimpton can deliver.”
In his new role, Fontana brings passion and an uncompromised work ethic to inspire and motivate his team.

He is Six Sigma Black Belt certified, and has led trainings to help others on the path to certification. When he isn’t leading the team at Vero Beach Hotel & Spa, Fontana is an avid swimmer, and has been mastering the sport since he was 7 years old.
