Andrea Scherz comes from a long line of hoteliers. His grandfather took over Gstaad Palace, which, under Andrea’s leadership, is thriving. His talent and ability were first recognised by the industry when he was elected to the board of Swiss Deluxe Hotels. And in January 2022 he was appointed Chairman of the Executive Committee of The Leading Hotels of the World (LHW). As the sixth president in LHW history, Andrea follows in the footsteps of his father, Ernst Andrea Scherz, who also served as president.
With more than 400 hotels in 80 countries, LHW’s collection includes everything from castles and palaces to mountain hideaways, safari camps and private islands. Created by hoteliers for hoteliers, LHW has a nine-decade history that empowers its members to stay independent. Superior hotels, exceptional hoteliers and sublime service are hallmarks of the independent community.
