The Guardsman, a new boutique hotel launching this June on Buckingham Gate street, London, is further strengthening its opening team with two new appointments.
Nicolas Monaglio will join as deputy general manager, supporting GM Eva Mount.
Monaglio joins the hotel from Fowey Harbour Hotel where he was hotel manager. Prior to this was part of the opening team at Harbour Hotels’ 5-star Southampton venue and has held senior positions at The Kensington, Corinthia and Sheraton Grand London Park Lane.
The Guardsman has also appointed Karan Kaul as food and beverage manager. Kaul spent 13 years at Firmdale Hotels, a period which saw him assume a variety of responsibilities, amongst them F&B manager at Dorset Square Hotel.
He was also part of the opening team at Ham Yard Hotel and room service manager at The Soho Hotel.
Rishi Sachdev, managing director of Shiva Hotels, The Guardsman’s owner and operator, said: “We are delighted to strengthen an already impressive team with these two highly experienced professionals.
“They both possess a wealth of knowledge of the luxury boutique hotel industry and as we start the countdown to opening, their expertise will be invaluable.”
