The Wellesley Knightsbridge has promoted its rooms manager to the role of director of room operations.
Andre Borges is now responsible for the day-to-day operation of its 36 guest rooms and suites.
Borges has been employed at the hotel since 2014, when he was taken on in the reception department.
Commenting on his new appointment, Borges said: “I have seen the hotel go from strength to strength since joining the team four years ago, so I am thrilled to be taking on this new role. An outstanding level of service is at the heart of what we offer, so I’m looking forward to maintaining this to provide our guests with a luxurious stay in London.”
Borges is originally from Portugal and speaks fluent Portuguese, English and Spanish. He graduated from Lisbon’s Turismo de Portugal, I.P Hospitality School with a degree in Hotel Management in 2010 and moved to London in September 2013.
