The Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris has announced the appointment of Nicolas De Gols as its new General Manager. He officially took up his post on 1st December and thus becomes the youngest general manager of a Palace.
A graduate of the Lycée Hôtelier Paul Augier in Nice and holder of a certificate in Hotel Asset Management and Real Estate Investments from Cornell University, Nicolas De Gols has been working in the ultra-luxury sector for over 10 years.
In 2011, he started his career at the Four Seasons George V Paris where he was Assistant Director of Banquets & Assistant Bar and Lounge Manager. For almost 10 years, he worked within the Four Seasons Hotels & Resorts group. On the other side of the Atlantic, he held the position of Assistant Restaurant Manager in Beverly Hills and then Restaurant Manager in Seattle. De Gols returned to Paris in 2018 as F&B Director of the Four Seasons George V.
He joined the Accor Group in 2020. At the French giant, he led the food and beverage operations for the Accor Europe luxury portfolio. In particular, he was responsible for the development of new F&B concepts for the 50 hotels in the portfolio and the supervision of a dozen openings.
Nicolas De Gols has managed the Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris on an interim basis since last June before being appointed permanent General Manager in December.
I am very pleased to become the General Manager of the Royal Monceau – Raffles Paris, the most Parisian and contemporary of the Palaces. Its strength lies in the different talents that make up its team. I am looking forward to this new challenge and to spreading the Raffles brand worldwide.
