In December it was announced that New York-based hospitality company Sydell Group had appointed Kate Hart as general manager of the upcoming NoMad London.
Opening in summer 2020, the 91-room property is a joint partnership between Sydell Group and investment firm BTC and is set in a historical 19th century courthouse and police station, known as Bow Street Magistrates Court and Police Station.
Kate will be responsible for overseeing operations for the launch of the London outpost of the brand, looking after recruitment, management, guest satisfaction, community relations, and revenue generation.
She was previously general manager at The Capital from 2009, which was owned by her family the Levins for 49 years before they sold the hotel to US-based Warwick Hotels and Resorts in 2017. During this time she was also chairman of Pride of Britain Hotels and named Independent Hotelier of the Year.
This will be the first NoMad outside of the United States and with Kate at the helm, it promises to be a sure-fire success.
