Founder of Nadler Hotels leaves CEO post

The Nadler Kensington was the first of the company's properties to open following its launch in 2006.

Robert Nadler, the founder and CEO of London-based Nadler Hotels, is stepping down from his executive seat.

“After many successful years creating and building the Nadler brand, I have been looking at the next stage of development for the business,” Nadler told The Caterer. “As it is has become clear that my vision for the future differs from that of the other shareholders, we have agreed that this was the right moment for me to hand over to someone more in keeping with their future business plans, leaving me free to pursue my own ambitions.”

In the meantime, Yvonne Jackson, who was previously the operations director of the company and has been working in the industry for 20 years, will take over as interim CEO. Before she claimed her leadership role in Nadler six years ago, Jackson worked for Hilton, QHotels and De Vere while running her own hotel, booking agency and consultancy business.
