Pan Pacific Hotels Group has announced the appointment of Steven Drewery as executive assistant manager for its first London property, due to open this autumn.
Pan Pacific London, situated in a mixed-use development in One Bishopsgate Plaza, welcomes Drewery to the role from his post at The Biltmore Mayfair, where he was an ‘integral part’ of the pre-opening and operational activity for the first London outpost of Hilton’s upmarket brand, LXR Hotels & Resorts.
In the new executive assistant manager position, Drewery will support Anne Golden, general manager, on strategic decision making in addition to overseeing all Pan Pacific London’s food and beverage operations.
He has a strong background in luxury hotel management and F&B operations, which includes positions at JW Marriott Grosvenor House; Fairmont Bab Al Bahr; Giorgio Armani, Ritz-Carlton and Conrad in Tokyo; Swissotel Singapore; and Peninsula Hong Kong.
Anne Golden, general manager comments: “With extensive operational and commercial leadership experience, Steven brings a clear vision to put Pan Pacific London on the map with an international audience and I very much look forward to working with him on this project as we prepare to open the hotel in autumn 2020.”
Drewery says: “I am thrilled to work on Pan Pacific London’s management team in a leadership capacity with Anne. I see it as an exciting challenge, especially overseeing the F&B operations, as each of the concepts should attract a wide diversity of guests and be appreciated by Londoners and visitors alike.”
Pan Pacific is owned by Singapore’s UOL Group Limited. It manages nearly 50 hotels, resorts and serviced suites. The 237-bedroom hotel is slated to open in the autumn.
