Denver, Colorado-based private equity firm KSL Capital Partners is creating a European investment platform based in London and has hired Adrian Constant from Orient Express Hotels to head the operation.
Constant was formerly a vice-president for Europe at Orient Express Hotels, with responsibility for the group's European properties and development responsibility for Europe, the Middle East and Asia.
“We believe that there will be an increasing number of attractive opportunities not only in Europe but internationally as demographic and travel trends are both positive,” said Eric Resnick, a managing director and co-founder of KSL. “Having a presence in London, led by someone of Adrian's caliber, will allow us to generate and react to these opportunities more effectively.”
KSL Capital specializes in travel and leisure enterprises in the hospitality, recreation, clubs, real estate and travel services sectors.
