Welcome to the Spring 2015 edition of PSD's Hospitality and Leisure InFocus. We have engaged with people who are involved with what we believe to be interesting and relevant issues across the international hotel sector.


At the same time we are launching our new website which is the final phase of our integration into the PSD Group.  We hope a review at our website will illustrate very clearly the key specialist practices that we operate and how PSD teams work together from time to time to share knowledge and add value to assignments where highly desired transferable skills are required.

My thanks go to Lothar Nessmann for his contribution which provides insight into the new Hotel Jen brand; to Marcus van Wal for his thoughts on leadership and his responsibilities as COO of Kempinski; to Virgin Limited Edition for sharing their renewable energy project on Necker Island and last but not least to our 'opinion columnist' Derek Picot.

Our teams in London, Hong Kong and Shanghai look forward to engaging with you over the coming months and very importantly to hearing your feedback on our new look and our new website.
