Edwardian Group London has appointed Inderneel Singh as the new general manager of the May Fair hotel.
Singh, a qualified chartered accountant, is the son of Jasminder Singh, the founder of the Edwardian Group London, which is the owner and operator of the May Fair hotel.
The 400-bedroom, five-star hotel also includes a spa and a theatre, and 16 meeting and function rooms. The largest, Crystal Room, has capacity for 280 people.
Singh brings existing experience of the Edwardian Group London to the role, as he was previously the group's corporate development manager, overseeing projects such as the recently approved new Leicester Square site.
Singh said: "I am thrilled to be leading such a capable team and I'm excited for the future. For me, this is an extraordinary chance to build on the great work that has been done by other members of the team, both past and present. Of course, I'll be bringing my own way of doing things to the hotel, but I think that's important for the hotel to stay fresh and competitive."
He highlighted the hotel's official status as partner of the British Film Institute Film Festival and London Fashion Week, as well as the site's facilities such as the May Fair bar, as key elements of the hotel that he would continue to develop.
He replaces outgoing manager Anthony Lee, who had been with the group since 2010.
