Vice President – Design & Technical Services, UK & Southern Europe – London
Our client is a leading name in global hospitality. As one of the largest hotel operators in the world, they also have one of the most interesting brand suites and a formidable development and refurbishment programme across their portfolio in the UK and Southern Europe regions.
As such, they are seeking a VP-level Design & Technical Services leader to take on their team working across their portfolio in the region. Reporting to the SVP DTS for Europe, you will lead a team of Design & Technical Services specialists in the delivery of their portfolio for their Economy to Mid-Scale and Premium brands.
The successful candidate will be from an Architecture or Interior Design design background and have good experience in decision-making around material and equipment choices providing value engineering services to their partner owners, whilst maintaining compliance with brand design standards and not interfering with the look and feel of the hotel under development. Prior experience within a hotel operator is preferred, and English and Spanish language skills would be highly advantageous. You will have a demonstrable track record in the effective management of technical teams delivering across a wide geographical area.
This is a rare and exciting opportunity to take on a senior technical leadership position in Europe for one of today’s most exciting hotel companies.
