Todd Hewitt named corporate director of spa for Shangri-La

Todd Hewitt, formerly regional spa director at Four Seasons, has moved to Hong Kong to head up spa for Shangri-La Hotels and Resorts.

In his new role as corporate director of spa for Shangri-La, Hewitt will be responsible for the company’s 90-plus CHI spas and health clubs, and will also have input on the emerging Kelly Sports business.

Hewitt follows Ian Brewis, Shangri-La’s previous head of spa, into the role, but the three-year gap between the appointments means the business has been in maintenance mode since.

Hewitt’s brief from Shangri-La CEO Greg Dogan and members of the family-owned business is to give new momentum to the spa and fitness division.

“It’s clear they see greater opportunity for spa within Shangri-La and want leadership for the existing brands and to move forward on new projects,” Hewitt told Spa Business in an exclusive interview in the current issue.

Hewitt said Shangri-La plans to grow its brand portfolio, with the eventual re-launch of its spas, but that this work won’t be rushed.

“You don’t get a second chance to relaunch,” he said. “It has to be done right the first time.”
