McKenna steps down as Maybourne boss

The chief executive of the Maybourne Hotel Group has announced she will step down from her role.

Geraldine McKenna, 50, will leave the company, which owns and manages London hotels The Berkeley, Claridge's and The Connaught, at the end of March next year.

McKenna joined The Savoy Group in 1996 as director of marketing. She was made chief executive of The Savoy Group in 2001, before it was bought by Irish property investment company Quinlan Private in 2002.

She said: "The formation and branding of Maybourne Hotel Group is now complete. The last six months' trading has seen all areas of the business significantly up on last year and the group will end 2005 with a very positive result."

Derek Quinlan, chairman of Quinlan Private, said: "Under her leadership, the business has performed exceptionally well and our hotels have never been in better shape. During a period of significant change for Maybourne, Geraldine has led the executive team with distinction and maintained standards throughout."
