The Beaumont appoints Procter as chief executive

UK: Five-star London hotel The Beaumont, located in Mayfair, has named Stuart Procter as its chief executive.

Procter brings more than 20 years of hospitality experience to the role, having most recently served as chief operating officer of the Stafford Collection.

He joins The Beaumont following a multimillion pound investment to fund the addition of 29 rooms and suites located at the back of the hotel, as well as a refurbishment of the original 72 rooms and ground floor.

Alongside his hotelier work, Procter supports Hospitality Action and the Hospitality Industry Benevolent Organisation, which offers assistance to those who work or have worked within the UK hospitality sector and who find themselves in crisis. Procter is also VP of Debra UK, a national charity supporting individuals and their families living with epidermolysis bullosa (EB).

“As a young boy growing up in Blackburn, if you had a hotel in Mayfair on the Monopoly board, you won the game – and so it’s always been my dream to work in a hotel in this prestigious part of the capital,” said Procter. “Now it’s time to put The Beaumont on the international map, putting service at the heart of everything we do, and creating some truly exciting food and beverage offerings in the process. I am delighted to be joining the team at The Beaumont and look forward to building our focus around creating those unique guest experiences, rooted in the very best of British hospitality.”

Richard Faber, director of Beaumont Hotel Properties, added: “Stuart has specialised in managing high-end hotel portfolios and hospitality projects throughout his career and as a result, his depth of knowledge and experience of the sector is second to none.  We are delighted to welcome him to the team and look forward to the next era of The Beaumont.”
