Morton Johnston has re-joined the team at The Chedi Muscat as general manager.

The Irish national originally joined the hotel in 2004 as rooms division manager and was promoted to executive assistant manager two years later.

In 2007, Johnston transferred to another GHM property in Korea as general manager.
He was most recently general manager at The Regent Taipei, and has also worked with The Leela in Goa and Mumbai.

Commenting on his return to The Chedi Muscat, Johnston said: “The Chedi Muscat is one of those iconic properties that you always hope to go back to someday. That’s as true for someone on staff as it is for a guest, and I feel fortunate for the opportunity to return.”

GHM vice president of operations York Brandes added: “With Morton, we have the best of both worlds. Someone who already has a relationship with partners, guests and staff, and someone who, at the same time, will breathe all kinds of new life into the resort with his arrival.”
