Sherry has held senior positions at properties including the Sheraton Park Tower Hotel, the Sanderson Hotel and the St Martins Lane Hotel. He also worked in both New York and London as part of a seven-year post with Morgans Hotel Group (formerly Ian Schrager Hotels).
Most recently, Sherry was chief operating officer for the De Vere Deluxe group before becoming managing director of luxury fine wine advisory company, Sarment, where he has worked for the last four years.
Sherry said: "This is an exciting but equally challenging year for London hotels and I am keen to put my years of experience and knowledge to the test. The Royal Horseguards and One Whitehall Place is a stunning property with incredible character and a rich historical background and I am looking forward to embracing the new challenges that this role will bring."
