Singh was previously the group’s corporate development manager, and managed the planning of the new Leicester Square site, which was recently approved by Westminster Council.
He will take the reins for the 400 bedroom May Fair hotel from Anthony Lee, who joined the hotel in 2010.
“I am thrilled to be leading such a capable team and I’m excited for the future. For me, this is an extraordinary chance to build on the great work that has been done by other members of the team, both past and present,” said Singh.
“Of course, I’ll be bringing my own way of doing things to the hotel, but I think that’s important for the hotel to stay fresh and competitive.”
Lee left the May Fair to take up the general manager role at the 159-bedroom London hotel The Café Royal earlier this year.
