Cheval Collection CEO Retires


George Westwell, CEO of Cheval Collection, is retiring from the company and stepping down from his role.

Westwell joined the group in March 2004, and spearheaded the transition from a long-stay accommodation model to one competing with the luxury five-star hotel market.

The company rebranded from Cheval Residences to Cheval Collection, and pushed to expand in the UK and internationally. 

The company has not yet named a successor.

‘It has been a pleasure to work with George, and on behalf of the board and our colleagues I want to thank him for his successful leadership of Cheval Collection. George has been an exceptional CEO and a driving force for Cheval Collection becoming the leading organisation that it is today,” Mohammed S Almarzooqi, Managing Director of Cheval Collection, said.

Westwell said: “It has been an absolute privilege working for Cheval for 17 years. Working for such a dynamic, forward-thinking brand, alongside the most outstanding calibre of colleagues is honouring. I am proud of the success of the brand and it has gone from strength to strength.”
