Fergus Stewart has been appointed chief executive of the Lancaster Landmark Hotel Company, which owns a global collection of hotels including the Landmark London, the Royal Lancaster and Basil Street Apartments.

He was promoted from his previous role as deputy managing director of the Lancaster Landmark Hotel Company, a position he held since 2021.
