The Dorchester Collection has appointed Richard
Alexander as General Manager of The Lana, Dubai.

In addition to managing the brand’s first hotel in
the Middle East, Richard will also oversee operations at
Dorchester Collection’s three luxury residential developments in
Dubai.

Richard Alexander

A British national, Richard holds
a BA (Hons) in hospitality administration/management from
Bournemouth University and has over three decades of global
hospitality industry experience.

With experience
launching and establishing new hotels, Richard joins Dorchester
Collection following five years in GM roles in
Bahamas.

He has also previously worked as GM of the Jumeirah Al Naseem in Dubai and spent a further seven
years in senior leadership roles at a number of Jumeirah’s other
properties.

Christopher Cowdray,
CEO of Dorchester Collection, said, “The opening of The Lana,
Dubai is a new chapter and a wonderful addition to Dorchester
Collection’s portfolio alongside the expansion of our residential
offering into the Middle East. I am confident that Richard’s
wealth of global experience, as well as his prior leadership
experience in Dubai, will be an invaluable asset for the opening
of the hotel.”

Set to open in September 2023, the 225-room Lana Dubai is
located in
the heart of Downtown Dubai overlooking the Business Bay
area.

The hotel, designed by Foster + Partners with interiors by
Parisian duo Gilles & Boissier, will be
operated under a management contract with developer Omnyiat.

“I am delighted to be joining Dorchester Collection at such
a pivotal time for the brand and to be leading Dorchester
Collection’s first opening in the Middle East with a dynamic,
passionate team as we build the anticipation for our opening next
year,” said Richard.
