Paul Brackley named general manager of Corbin and King's Beaumont hotel

Paul Brackley has been appointed general manager of the first hotel to be launched by renowned restaurateurs Chris Corbin and Jeremy King.

He will oversee the opening, in summer 2014, of the 73-bedroom Beaumont hotel in Balderton Street in London's Mayfair, between Oxford Street and Grosvenor Square.

Prior to joining the pre-opening team for the hotel, Brackley was general manager at the Crowne Plaza London the City hotel. He started his career in the hotel industry more than 25 years ago as a management trainee with the Savoy Group, which at the time owned the Savoy, Claridge's, the Connaught and the Berkeley.

A fellow of the Institute of Hospitality, a St Julian's Scholar and a Master Innholder, Brackley has also worked at the Landmark London, the Pierre New York, the St James' Court and the Millennium Mayfair hotels.

The Beaumont is currently being developed behind the facade of an Art Deco building, which was originally built in 1926 as a town garage. It will feature a sculpture integrated into the architecture of the building, housing a bedroom, called The Crouching Man by Antony Gormley, the artist best known for his Angel of the North work in Gateshead.

The hotel will include a restaurant serving an American-style menu, an American bar, residents' bar and library, spa and gym.

Corbin and King has been business partners for more than 30 years, originally making a name for themselves as the owners of Le Caprice, the Ivy and J Sheekey, which as part of Caprice Holdings, were sold in 1998. They have since gone on to open the Wolseley, the Delaunay, Brasserie Zedel and Colbert under the umbrella of Rex Restaurant Associates.
