Can we have two possessive one after the other?

Example : Quebec’s Hôtel de Glace’s president and general manager

Is that good?

Thank you

    I believe there is no rule against it, but I would much prefer: "President and General Manager of Quebec's Hôtel de Glace".

    As Pete says, there's no rule against multiple possessives, but I think this happens most when the possessives are of people, eg 'my brother's girlfriend's sister', 'Jessica's mum's friend'.

    I would also go for Pete's suggestion. Some people capitalise titles, others don't. So you can write General Manager or general manager​.
