Published on : Thursday, July 8, 2021

Philippe Leboeuf has been appointed Managing Director of Raffles London at the OWO. The property, on Whitehall, opposite Horse Guards, will open in next year. The much anticipated 125-room hotel will also include 85 branded residences, and sits within the former Grade II listed Old War Office building.

Most recently, Leboeuf was Regional Vice President of Operations for Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group and General Manager of Mandarin Oriental Paris, positions he held since 2013 and 2010, respectively. He brings over 30 years’ experience operating luxury hotels to the role. Prior to joining Mandarin Oriental, he was General Manager of Claridge’s in London for three years.

As managing director of Raffles London at the OWO, Leboeuf will be responsible for overseeing and executing operations for the London flagship Raffles property. Having undergone a monumental transformation over the last five years, the OWO will also comprise a collection of nine restaurants and bars and an immersive spa.

The Old War Office, originally completed in 1906 and designed by British architect William Young, is steeped in history. Formerly the site of the original Palace of Whitehall, home to Henry VIII and other monarchs, the building has witnessed world-shaping events while influential political and military leaders including Winston Churchill and David Lloyd George held office.
