New York, NY (PRWEB) July 23, 2010

Simon van Kempen, featured on Bravo TV’s hit show The Real Housewives of New York City, announced today the formation of a new Social Media consultancy along with his resignation as General Manager from Hotel Chandler (http://www.hotelchandler.com) effective August 27, 2010. van Kempen has managed the luxury boutique in Manhattan’s historic Murray Hill neighborhood in New York City since it opened in September 2001.

This new Hotel and Social Media Consultancy company specializing in the luxury & boutique sectors will capitalize on his twenty-six years of experience in the hotel hospitality industry combined with his explosion of social media know-how as a reality television personality over the past three years. van Kempen has already achieved a head start by acquiring previous employer Triumph Hospitality as his first client, with their four New York hotels: Iroquois New York, Hotel Chandler, Washington Jefferson, and Hotel Belleclaire.

"After running Hotel Chandler for nine years, I'm sad to see Simon go but delighted that we'll still be working together as we drive our business forward through social media,” said Shimmie Horn, owner of Triumph Hospitality.

As a General Manager, van Kempen had a strong track record of keeping a tightly knit team with low turnover, and while leaving behind a group of dedicated hospitality professionals he'll miss, he very much looks forward to commencing this foray into the social media realm.
van Kempen is also the co-author of “Little Kids Big City” with his wife Alex McCord star of Bravo’s hit show The Real Housewives of New York City, a lighthearted and critically acclaimed he-said, she-said rant about their experiences raising their two young children in the Big Apple
