Edition Hotels, the 14-property collaboration between boutique hotelier Ian Schrager and Marriott International, has appointed Josh Fluhr SVP and global managing director. Fluhr follows long-time executive Dan Flannery in the role and will push through the brand’s growth plan, which will include the 15th Edition hotel to debut in Tampa, Fla. later this year and will be followed by new properties in Rome and Mexico.
Fluhr is not a newcomer to the Edition brand. He served in a number of executive roles from 2010 to 2011 and then again beginning in 2016 when he rejoined the Marriott International and Edition team. He was part of the property opening teams for 11 of the brand’s current 14 properties, and in his new role will oversee all aspects of the brand’s culture, training platform, hotel openings, design evolution, marketing and PR strategy, nightlife programming, and food and beverage concept development.
