Gregor Andréewitch Named General Manager
of the Conrad Tokyo


29 November 2007: Gregor Andréewitch has joined the global contemporary luxury brand, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, as General Manager of the Conrad Tokyo, effective immediately. 
 
Gregor will manage all operational efforts with a focus on further enhancing the Conrad Tokyo's position as one of the city's most prestigious luxury hotels. Gregor replaces the former, highly regarded General Manager, Keith Allardice, who recently returned to his native Australia.
 
An Austrian national, Gregor has over 25 years experience in the hospitality industry, spanning five continents. He joins the Conrad Tokyo from the Drake Hotel in Chicago. Prior to this, Gregor held positions at Hilton hotels in Belgium, Germany, Lesotho, Bahrain, Venezuela, Trinidad, Malaysia and the UK. 
 
Koos Klein, President Hilton Hotels Corporation - Asia Pacific, said of the appointment, "Gregor brings with him an admirable reputation for managing iconic properties, having most recently been General Manager of the renowned Drake Hotel, a Hilton-managed hotel. He has also joined us at a very exciting time, when the Conrad Tokyo's panoramic views, contemporary Japanese design and avant-garde dining experiences have placed it among Tokyo's top luxury hotels in the Michelin Guide Tokyo 2008."

The Conrad Tokyo is a masterpiece of contemporary Japanese design, boasting some of the largest guest rooms in Tokyo, with panoramic views of the Hamarikyu Gardens, Tsukiji market and Tokyo Bay and a swimming pool overlooking the modern urban landscape of Shiodome. Since its opening in 2005, the Conrad Tokyo has been recognised through a host of awards and accolades including the Michelin Guide Tokyo 2008 which recently named the Conrad Tokyo one of Tokyo's leading luxury hotels and awarded its celebrated China Blue restaurant one Michelin star. 
 
Conrad Hotels & Resorts is continuously growing and strengthening its global portfolio and currently has luxury hotels and resorts in leading urban and resort destinations globally. New Conrad hotels and resorts are in conversion in the Maldives and under development in Shanghai, Koh Samui, Abu Dhabi, Dubai, the Bahamas, Buenos Aires and the Portuguese Algarve.
