Nicolas Messian has joined luxury London hotel The Dorchester as hotel manager.
Messian, whose great grandfather Henry Elles, opened The Savoy in 1889 as restaurant manager, joins the hotel from One & Only Royal Mirage in Dubai where he was also hotel manager.
He will report directly to regional director and general manager Roland Fasel and oversee all hotel operations at the 250-bedroom hotel.
Fasel said: “I am delighted to welcome Nicolas to the team. His experience running hotel operations in Dubai has earned him a fantastic reputation amongst hoteliers and colleagues alike. He will be a great asset to our team.”
