The Rocco Forte Collection has appointed Karim Naffah as the company’s new managing director with immediate effect. The move will allow Sir Rocco Forte, founder and executive chairman, to focus on the group’s expansion, primarily through management contracts.
Naffah has acted as a consultant to the company since July 2009, during the group’s refinancing. Prior to that he was finance director at Mitchells & Butlers, following a term at Six Continents/Bass, where he oversaw the demerger of Six Continents hotel and pub divisions.
