Andrew Zobler awarded Outstanding Contribution


Andrew Zobler, Founder & CEO of Sydell Group, is to receive the AHEAD Americas 2018 Outstanding Contribution Award.

He will receive the accolade at the AHEAD Awards ceremony at Faena Forum, Miami on 12 June, where shortlisted projects will also compete for prestigious awards across 15 categories celebrating the best in hospitality experience and design.

Since Zobler co-founded Sydell Group in 2005, the company has gone on to create and manage a diverse portfolio of hotels, all rooted in their location and architecture. A pioneer in the hospitality sphere, Zobler’s core expertise is an ability to identify and collaborate with original talent within multiple industries. The result? Compelling new hotels that engage the communities around them.

Sydell Group’s portfolio encompasses award-winning properties such as NoMad New York and Los Angeles; The Line LA and DC; The Ned, London; Freehand Miami, Chicago, Los Angeles, and New York; with upcoming openings in Austin and Las Vegas. Zobler’s passion for converting once-derelict buildings or neglected neighbourhoods – or simply adding something new to the offering as with Freehand – ensures that each hotel champions design and creativity while acknowledging the past.
