Starting his career in London, he has held hotel roles in locations such as Thailand, Hong Kong, Singapore, Spain and the UK, working for several luxury hotel brands.

Stephen McCall commented: “I am so pleased to welcome Fergus to Europe at such a pivotal time for our InterContinental and Kimpton brands. As we enter in to new and emerging markets with the InterContinental brand and continue to expand Kimpton within Europe, I am confident Fergus is the right person to continue the operational excellence of both brands across the region.”

Fergus Stewart, commented: “InterContinental Hotels & Resorts is where I started my IHG career and I am excited to be able to lead the InterContinental and Kimpton brands at such a dynamic time.
