Klaus Kabelitz

Klaus Kabelitz has been appointed General Manager of The Biltmore Mayfair, bringing over 35 years of experience in the luxury hospitality industry with him. He arrives from Belmond Cadogan Hotel London, where he had held the title of General Manager.

Commencing his career in 1979 with Hilton, Kabelitz then spent seven years honing his skills with Four Seasons in London and Berlin. He went on to hold key leadership positions in prestigious London hotels such as Claridge's and The Berkeley, where he served as General Manager from 2003 to 2012.
