Evan Mount has been appointed as the opening general manager for The Guardsman, the new luxury hotel on Buckingham Gate from Shiva Hotels.
Mount joins from her role as general manager at Harbour Hotel in Richmond and after a stint at The Athenaeum Hotel in London.
Previously she was general manager at The Arch in London from 2015 to 2017 and also spent ten years with Firmdale Hotels, working at the brand’s Soho, Charlotte Street and Dorset Square properties.
The new purpose-built hotel will comprise 53 bedrooms, six residents and a restaurant for residents and guests only and will mark a ‘new direction’ in the luxury market for Shiva Hotels when it opens in early 2020.
Commenting on the appointment of Mount, Rishi Sachdev, managing director of Shiva Hotels, comments: “We are absolutely delighted that Eva is joining our team. She has worked with some of London’s leading five-star boutique hotels and as such her experience will be invaluable. The fact she is joining us at this relatively early stage will ensure The Guardsman is operating effortlessly from the minute it opens its doors to the public.”
