Pentahotels, the German hotel brand owned by the Rosewood Hotel Group, has promoted Ben Thomas to the position of regional director Pentahotels UK.
In his new role, Thomas will take over from Andrew Munt, who was promoted to vice president operations for the group earlier this year, and will now be responsible for all hotel operations and management within the region.
Since joining the hotel group in 2014, Thomas has overseen the launch of two new hotels in his previous role as cluster general manager, Pentahotels Birmingham & Derby hotels. He previously held general manager positions with Village Hotel Club and Millennium & Copthorne.
He will continue to cultivate relationships with the teams across Pentahotels' various properties in the UK and strengthen the group's global market presence.
Pentahotels has 27 hotels across seven countries - six in the UK in Birmingham, Derby, Inverness, Ipswich, Reading and Warrington - with more under development across Asia and Europe.
Munt said: "With such a proven record of success since joining Pentahotels, Ben is absolutely the right individual to lead the UK in to its next chapter. His sound strategic and commercial approach will prove incredibly valuable at this time. I am delighted to hand the region over to Ben and am excited to see how it evolves under his unique leadership style."
