Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group has appointed Richard Langonne as General Manager of Mandarin Oriental Wangfujing, Beijing.

He succeeds Mark Bradford, who has been tasked with setting up a new Mandarin Oriental hotel in Shenzhen.

Langonne has nearly two decades of experience in the luxury hotel industry, most recently as Hotel Manager of Mandarin Oriental, Hong Kong, a post he held since 2017.

A native of France, Langonne began his career with Hotel de Crillon in Paris, just after he gained a bachelor’s degree in hotel management from Vatel Hotel and Tourism Business School in France.

Later, he moved to Asia where he launched and managed hotels across Southeast Asia, including Krabi, Bangkok, Macau and Hanoi. Langonne is no stranger to the China market, where he previously held posts at hotels in Shanghai and Guangzhou.
