Hugh O'Byrne joins Eton Collection's Threadneedles as general manager

Hugh O'Byrne has been appointed general manager of the Eton Collection's flagship hotel, Threadneedles in the City of London.

He joins the 69-bedroom hotel from De Vere Venues Canary Wharf, where he spent three years. Prior to that he spent five years with Hilton Hotels & Resorts as director of operations at the Hilton Metropole and Hilton London Gatwick.

O'Byrne said he was excited by the opportunities and challenges ahead at Threadneedles. "This is a fantastic opportunity," he said. "I am looking forward to working with the team to create a dynamic environment for the staff and to ensure our guests continue to receive the high level of service I know is expected from the Eton Collection.

Work is currently under way to add five new bedrooms and a boardroom at the hotel which, as part of the Eton Collection, was purchased by the US-based Westmont Hospitality Group out of administration in December 2010. The Eton Collection comprises three hotels in London and one in Edinburgh.
