Hugh O'Byrne has been appointed general manager of the Eton Collection's flagship hotel, Threadneedles in the City of London.

He joins the 69-bedroom hotel from De Vere Venues Canary Wharf, where he spent three years. Prior to that he spent five years with Hilton Hotels & Resorts as director of operations at the Hilton Metropole and Hilton London Gatwick.

O'Byrne said he was excited by the opportunities and challenges ahead at Threadneedles. "This is a fantastic opportunity," he said. "I am looking forward to working with the team to create a dynamic environment for the staff and to ensure our guests continue to receive the high level of service I know is expected from the Eton Collection.

Work is currently under way to add five new bedrooms and a boardroom at the hotel which, as part of the Eton Collection, was purchased by the US-based Westmont Hospitality Group out of administration in December 2010. The Eton Collection comprises three hotels in London and one in Edinburgh.
