Luxury London hotel The Mandrake has announced the appointment of a new managing director as it plans its evolution post Covid-19.
The 34-bedroom hotel welcomed Mikail Goek to the team in July 2020, to spearhead the reopening of The Mandrake after England’s first lockdown and restructure operations to strengthen the hotel’s position in navigating the new trading environment.
He joins with experience from some of London’s most high-profile members-only establishments, including The South Kensington Club and, more recently, Maslow’s, Mortimer House.
Mikail explains why the team behind The Mandrake will make a success of the hotel in this current climate: “They are innovative and flexible for the guest experience; having a smaller team enables fluidity to change and no long decision-making processes. This is a huge strength, especially in this climate, and I am excited to be a part in developing The Mandrakes offering, to lead how the industry will change after these months.”
Rami Fustok, who founded The Mandrake in 2017, adds: “He has restructured the business entirely since joining in July 2020 to enable us to battle through these extraordinary times and for us to grow from strength to strength, so he has been a natural choice in leading the company forward.”
