NH Hotel Group has appointed Hermann Spatt as general manager of its new Nhow London hotel to launch the brand in the UK when it opens in September.
Born in Austria, Spatt studied international hotel management at MODUL University in Vinna before joining Astron as a front office manager. He has been with NH Hotel Group for 24 years and was general manager of NH Vienna Airport. He has also been general manager of the group's Nhow hotels in Berlin and Rotterdam.
He will oversee the 70-strong team at the 190-bedroom Shoreditch hotel.
Spatt said: "Having been involved with the Nhow brand from its very beginning, I am delighted to be able to bring the concept to London, a city whose creative energy truly matches the hotel. With the project having been in development for a while, it's great to see it come to life and I look forward to revealing it to the public."
