Julian Payne

Having a track record of over 30 years of proven success managing both boutique and top 5 star hotels including The Ritz London, Le Crillon Paris and Mandarin Oriental Hotels in both London and Hong Kong, Julian Payne is well-equipped to step into the role of General Manager for Hôtel Swexan.

His boutique and "hands on" management style was grounded at Threadneedles Hotel, London and Blakes Hotel London before coming to the States in 2015 and opening Wave Resort, New Jersey, Timber Cove Resort, California and most recently The Rockaway Hotel, New York City. Striving for nothing short of perfection, Payne will prioritize consistently delivering an exceptional personalized guest experience, while maximizing revenue and profitability.
