Boutique hotel Flemings Mayfair in London has appointed Henrik Muehle as general manager.
With over 20 years' experience in the industry, Muehle joins the 129-room property, which is family-owned, from the five-star St James's hotel and club in Mayfair, as well as its Michelin-starred restaurant, Seven Park Place.
