Commodore Perry Estate, Auberge Resorts Collection, has appointed Jordi Vallѐs Blistin as general manager. Blistin is a seasoned hospitality professional with more than 20 years of experience. In this role, he will oversee all operations of the property located in Austin, TX.

The property has 54 rooms and suites, including a collection of five signature suites. It has several F&B venues, including Lutie’s Garden Restaurant. The estate also houses a 50-foot oval swimming pool, an organic urban garden and a fitness center.

Prior to joining Commodore Perry Estate, Blistin was general manager at The Vanderbilt, Auberge Resorts Collection, a mansion-turned-storied 33-room luxury resort located in downtown Newport, RI. He also held the title of resort manager for Chileno Bay Resort, Auberge Resorts Collection, handling all areas of the property, including the two restaurants, spa, 119 guestrooms and suites, and 82 residences.

Born and raised in Spain’s Barcelona, Blistin knew from a young age that food and hospitality would be a part of his life. He always enjoyed cooking and discovering new recipes which ultimately inspired him to continue down the path of culinary training by receiving a bachelor’s degree in hotel management and restaurant administration from St. Ignasi in Barcelona, as well as a certification from the Catalonian Association of Sommeliers. After spending several years learning to be a chef in Asia and Europe, working with three-Michelin star restaurants, followed by executive chef roles at various luxury hotel properties in the U.S., he redirected his focus, discovering a passion for the hospitality industry. This pivotal decision led to his return to school to obtain a certificate from the “General Managers Program” at Cornell University in New York.
