Steven H.

During Holt's tenures he has opened multiple luxury hotels, rebranded and concepted restaurants, acted as a brand spokesman to the global media and advised senior leadership on media relations and crisis management.

"He has an impeccable reputation throughout the industry and has its most envied media relationships. I have worked with him for more than 10 years and have come to know him as one of the smartest executives with the utmost professionalism, experience and taste."

As Chief Travel and Luxury Officer, Holt will lead the agency's efforts to increase the firm's clientele in those respective categories, which also comprise hospitality, dining, wine and spirits. Holt's experience with The Ritz-Carlton Hotel Company included leading media relations for the brand and its many properties throughout the Americas. He will lead the agency's operations based in Beverly Hills, California.

The agency has also announced Rania Sedhom has been elevated as Chief Legal Counsel, a role in which she will continue to oversee all legal issues pertaining to the firm's business and operations.

Additionally, 360bespoke has appointed Kim Myers Robertson, a respected editorial and commercial photographer, as its Creative Director, where she will work with the company's client collection on image marketing and branding campaigns. The firm also has brought on Alexa Starr as its Director of Social Media & Engagement, drawing on the executive's interactive strategies and savvy in positioning artists and brands for Millennial audiences.

Bestselling author and journalist Sarah Rose also joins the 9-person advisory board for 360bespoke, bringing journalistic and literary experience to the agency. Her first published book, For All the Tea in China: How England Stole the World's Favorite Drink and Changed History (Viking) was a brisk seller in book stores around the country and named Book of the Week by the BBC.

"The addition of west coast leadership, three fantastic hires and a new member of our advisory board will help us continue to grow 360bespoke into an industry leader in the luxury space," said Murphy.
