Soennichsen joins Morgans Hotel Group from One Aldwych, where he has been general manager since 2008. He previously worked at the Savoy hotel as hotel manager for four years and has also worked in mainland Europe and the Middle East with the Inter-Continental Hotels Group and Fairmont Raffles Hotels International.
