UK: Rocco Forte Hotels has appointed former general manager Stuart Johnson to Brown’s Hotel in London as managing director.

After serving as general manager for 11 years, Johnson left the 115-bedroom hotel in 2016 to take up the role as project manager for the wider group, 20 years after it was first established by Sir Rocco Forte and his sister, Olga Polizzi.

In this role he oversaw the development of The Westbund Hotel in Shanghai, which is due to open summer 2019. He also served as interim general manager at The Assila Hotel in Jeddah, Rocco Forte's first hotel in the Middle East.

Johnson said: "I am pleased to be returning to Brown's - a hotel given my previous tenure that is very close to my heart. I re-join a passionate team with a new restaurant, Beck at Brown's by Heinz Beck and the recently redesigned Donovan Bar headed up by Salvatore Calabrese. I look forward to leading Brown's through the next chapter of its already rich history and maintaining its reputation as a pillar of excellence in the world of hospitality as a leading luxury hotel on the international stage."

Brown's Hotel was established in 1837 and became part of the Rocco Forte group in July 2003.
