The Hilton London Metropole hotel, believed to be the UK's largest conference hotel, has announced the appointment of Remco Norden as general manager.
A Dutch national who speaks five languages, Norden has 23 years of experience with Hilton in a variety of commercial and operational roles in the UK and overseas, most recently at the 821-room Hilton London Gatwick Airport hotel, where he had been general manager since 2016.
In January 2014, he opened the Hilton Istanbul Bomonti Hotel & Conference Center, Hilton's flagship and largest hotel in continental Europe. The hotel went on to win a number of company awards for its sales performance.
Norden said: "I am delighted to be joining the largest Hilton hotel in Europe, where I will be able to interact with a range of guests from across the globe, as well as work with the talented and professional team during the exciting times that lie ahead."
