In his new role, Robert will oversee operations and strategies for the iconic London hotel as well as for the other two UK properties of Dorchester Collection: 45 Park Lane, London and Coworth Park, Ascot.

Commenting on Robert Whitfield’s appointment, Christopher Cowdray, chief executive officer of Dorchester Collection, says: “I am delighted to welcome Robert to the company as he will bring tremendous hospitality experience, drive and passion to the company.”

Robert joins from his most recent position of regional vice president and general manager for Four Seasons Resort Hualalai, Hawaii, where he has worked since 2007. Prior to this, Robert worked as general manager for three years at Four Seasons, Silicon Valley, and six years at Four Seasons Resort, Nevis.

“I am excited to be joining such an iconic brand and be a part of Dorchester Collection’s senior leadership team in the UK,” commented Robert. “I look forward to spearheading the future of three iconic hotels, which hold such prestige, and leading them into an exciting new era, where they will continue to be leaders in the luxury industry.”

Having studied at the Hotel & Catering International Management Association at Brighton University, Robert began his career in London as a senior assistant chief steward at the Intercontinental Hotel Park Lane before moving to the Grosvenor House Hotel as assistant restaurant manager and later The Athenaeum Hotel as food and beverage manager. Robert then became deputy general manager at Dukes Hotel, London, before his first general manager role at the Royal St Lucian Hotel in the West Indies.
