PPHE Hotel Group UK announces managerial appointments

The PPHE Hotel Group has announced the appointment of several senior staff members within the UK management team.

Axel Krueger has been promoted to hotel manager at Park Plaza Riverbank London and Plaza on the River. He has worked as operations manager at the hotel for the past two years.

Krueger first joined PPHE Hotel Group as food and beverage director at London flagship hotel, Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, in 2010 having gained international management experience with Starwood Hotels & Resorts.

As hotel manager, Krueger will oversee the hotel's refurbishment and extension phase.

Joining Krueger at Park Plaza Riverbank London and Plaza on the River as new operations manager is Dror Danino-Forsyth.

He has more than a decade of hotel management experience, having previously held roles at the Hyatt Regency Jerusalem, and the King David hotel.

Meanwhile, Park Plaza County Hall London has appointed James Doherty as operations manager. Doherty first joined the hotel group five years ago as reception manager for the opening of Park Plaza Westminster Bridge London and was promoted to assistant front office manager within six months.

Doherty takes over the role from Jo Alder who, among other roles at PPHE Hotel Group, has completed three years at Park Plaza County Hall London and now moves to sister hotel Park Plaza Sherlock Holmes as the new general manager.

Greg Hegarty, regional general manager UK, PPHE Hotel Group, said: "I am extremely pleased to welcome Axel, Dror, James and Jo to their new positions, which come at such an exciting time for the development and expansion of the UK portfolio."

"We are delighted that so many of our senior appointments have developed their extensive hospitality and management experience within our hotels and join at such an important time for PPHE Hotel Group's London openings across Waterloo, Park Royal and the South Bank vicinities.

"I'm confident that we have a strong team to support the operational and general management of the hotels to ensure the guest journey and satisfaction is still at the heart of everything we do."
