Fairmont appoints new general maragers

In response to recent development activity and portfolio growth, Fairmont Hotels & Resorts has announced appointments at two of its key international destinations. Nicholas Emery has been named the general manager of Fairmont Beijing and Jennifer Harding will take on the role of general manager of The Fairmont Royal Pavilion in Barbados.

A 22-year veteran to the hospitality industry, Emery has held progressive positions at various international properties in London, Pittsburgh and Chicago. Emery joined the company in 1999 at The Fairmont Chicago and was later appointed to his most recent position as general manager at The Fairmont Royal Pavilion. He will now serve as the general manager of Fairmont Beijing, the second Asia property for the brand, set to open in 2008.

Also taking on a new role within the company is Harding, a seasoned hospitality authority who has spent more than half of her career with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts. With a degree from Westminster College in London, she began as a training advisor and consultant for the Hotel & Catering Board, ultimately leading Harding to human resources positions for Trust House Forte and Pemberton Hotels & Resorts in Barbados. She previously served as director, human resources and director of operations at The Fairmont Royal Pavilion, where she has now earned her appointment to general manager.
