Fairmont Beijing is delighted to announce the appointment of Mr. Carl Duggan as their General Manager. Mr. Duggan will oversee and lead all aspects of the hotel's operations and management. His wide-ranging experience is of strategic importance to the continued success of this heritage brand hotel.

Mr. Duggan grew up in England with hospitality in his blood, working in the kitchens of a local hotel from an early age, then graduating from Harrogate College of Arts and Technology with 7 related diplomas in hospitality.

"I am honored to be given the privilege to continue the journey and custodianship for this iconic legacy brand that has been making unforgettable moments for our guests for more than 100 years. I plan to strengthen the team to consistently turn moments into memories, whilst developing the next generation of hospitality leaders," says Carl Duggan of his new role.
