Frenchman lands plum job at London's Claridge's hotel

Frenchman Philippe Leboeuf has been revealed as the new general manager of luxury London hotel Claridge's.

He will start his new role at the Maybourne Hotel Group property in July and was most recently vice-president of operations at Rosewood Hotels in Dallas.

A graduate of Cornell University in the US and fluent in English, French, Italian and Spanish, other management stints prior to Claridge's include Le Crillon in Paris and the Carlyle in New York.

Leboeuf said: "Claridge's is recognised internationally as one of the best hotels in the world."

Sylvain Ercoli was previously general manager at Claridge's. Predecessors include Michael Hoffmann and Christopher Cowdray, now general manager of the Dorchester.
