Worldwide: Soho House founder Nick Jones has stepped down from his role as CEO, promoting Andrew Carnie to lead the company.
Following a successful treatment of prostate cancer, Jones has announced his transition from CEO to founder. He intends to “focus on the creative and membership aspects of Soho House”.
In a letter to members, Jones said: “First some bad news, and some very good news: in early summer I was diagnosed with prostate cancer. It was caught early and my treatment has been 100 per cent successful – and I’m not only healthy again, but also cancer-free.
“Inevitably, this experience has changed my perspective and focus… I want to do more of what I love, which is making sure you have a good time in well-designed, welcoming spaces and focusing on our House Foundations programmes, which help people flourish in the creative industries.
“Taking over the day-to-day running of the business will be Andrew Carnie, who’s worked alongside me for the past four years. I know him well and Soho House will be in safe hands with him as our new CEO.”
Carnie has served as president of Soho House since September 2020 and previously held the role of chief commercial officer. He takes on the CEO position as the company prepares for openings in Stockholm and Miami this year, and in 2023 Bangkok, Mexico City and Manchester (UK).
In 2022, Soho House has launchd five openings in locations such as Nashville, West Hollywood, Copenhagen, Brighton and Balham (UK).
