Marriott's Wellesley Knightsbridge appoints new operations manager

London's 36-bedroom Wellesley Knightsbridge hotel, which has recently joined Marriott International's the Luxury Collection, has appointed Chiara Vierchowod as operations manager.

Vierchowod has joined the hotel from the Bentley London, where she was assistant manager for just over a year. She previously worked in front office roles at the Hoxton Holborn, Millennium & Copthorne hotels at Chelsea Football Club, and the Kensington hotel.

Originally from Italy, Vierchowod studied pharmacy before switching to hospitality. She moved to London in 2009 and speaks five languages.

Vierchowod said: "I am delighted to join the team at the Wellesley Knightsbridge, particularly at such an exciting time for the hotel. Becoming part of The Luxury Collection is a pivotal moment in the hotel's history and we are excited to see what the partnership has in store."

Opened in 2012, the Wellesley is owned by City and Country Hotels, a subsidiary of Arab Investments. It was initially managed by Bespoke Hotels on a white label basis. Overlooking Hyde Park, the property features the Oval restaurant, Crystal bar and Jazz lounge.
