Appointed General Manager
At The Halkin by COMO in London, United Kingdom
The Halkin by COMO, London, has announced the appointment of Simon Wakefield as its new General Manager. Simon returns to The Halkin after almost a decade, having first worked at COMO’s Belgravia hotel when it opened in 2004 as Rooms Division Manager.
“I am thrilled to return as General Manager at such an exciting time for the hotel,” says Simon: “The Halkin has always had an incredible reputation for cuisine and we are busy preparing for the hotel’s new restaurant, Ametsa with Arzak Instruction - serving Basque cuisine from the leading Spanish chef Elena Arzak – which opens this month.”
Simon rejoins COMO Hotels and Resorts after working in management roles with Intercontinental and the Savoy Group of hotels, among others. Most recently Simon was General Manager at London’s Athenaeum Hotel and Apartments.
