Can Faik has today joined Hospitality Interiors, adding additional capability to the title’s already well-versed editorial team. Can joins as Editor, with Gemma Ralph being promoted to Senior Editor. John Legg continues to lead the team as Editorial Director.

With its magazine, website and newly-launched trade event - the Hospitality Interiors portfolio is strong. The augmented team will increase the range and elevate the reach of editorial across the platform, with new ideas currently in development.

Can Faik is an award-winning journalist and is best recognised for insightful interviews with acclaimed designers, hotel owners and CEOs. He has been a consultant for BBC1’s The Apprentice, is a board member for the Hospitality Industry Network – NEWH, and regularly chairs debates and speaks at hospitality events. He has written Forewords for international designers AB Concept and Marcel Wanders’ latest books.

“I believe the addition of Can Faik to our editorial team will add a strong dynamic to our current agenda across print, online and on the events side of the business. I look forward to realising our plans with our networks and communities in the very near future,” says Nigel Gearing, chairman.
