Rémy’s career in hospitality had an illustrious start as he found himself completing his military service as President Mitterand’s wine butler in the Palais de l’Elysée. He then went on to gain further experience working in properties in Paris such as Le Crillon, Prince de Galles and Jacques Cagna restaurants. Persuaded to move to London in order to work for Albert Roux at Le Gavroche, Rémy settled in England with his family and later went on to work for seven years at The Dorchester. Some years spent with Conran as General Manager of two sites lead him eventually to work on the development and construction of the Sofitel St. James in Pall Mall, where he stayed for five years. His contribution as Assistant General Manager there helped establish the success that the hotel still enjoys today.
Before joining The Arts Club, Rémy then spent over seven years working alongside Chris Corbin and Jeremy King at Rex Restaurant Associates, developing the company and setting up the openings of The Delaunay and Brasserie Zedel, whilst continuing to keep a close eye on The Wolseley Restaurant in Piccadilly which roared on to be an overwhelming success. Remy joined The Arts Club as chief operating officer where he’s been involved in developing every area of the club to create a really special environment for both members and staff, before becoming chief executive officer in October 2021.
Rémy is a board committee member at The Royal Academy of Culinary Arts.
