John OShea has been appointed general manager of The Langham, Gold Coast and The Jewel Residences, Gold Coast, scheduled to open in 2022.

Born in Brisbane and raised in Queensland, Australia, OShea has more than 40 years experience in pre-openings, hotel renovations, operations, re-branding, food and beverage within the hospitality industry.

OShea first joined Langham Hospitality Group in 2012 as the general manager of The Langham, Shanghai, Xintiandi. Located in the heart of Shanghai's entertainment hub, it is the flagship hotel of the groups luxury brand, The Langham, in mainland China. Under OSheas leadership, the hotel received numerous awards and accolades including Michelin stars for its Cantonese restaurant, Tang Court.

A dedicated leader who has been with the Group for over a decade, John is best placed to take the helm of The Langham and Jewel Residences, the two most highly anticipated openings on the Gold Coast, said Stefan Leser, chief executive officer, Langham Hospitality Group. I am confident that Johns wealth of experience will not only continue to elevate The Langham brand in the region, but he will deliver the promise of impeccable service standards and luxury experiences for which the brand is renowned, added Leser.

Strategically located on the beachfront in Surfers Paradise, the luxury hotel and residences are in the central and tallest of the three landmark towers of the Jewel development. It is the first and largest development with direct beach access to be built on the Gold Coast within the last 30 years.
