Farnborough hotel, Aviator has promoted its director of operations to the role of general manager.
Adam Skrzypczak joined Aviator in 2015 and has now been appointed as the hotel’s GM, replacing Dominic Osborne who has been in the role since 2016.
Skrzypczak will officially start his new role this week on July 1, and will lead Aviator and the hotel’s neighbouring gastropub, The Swan.
He began his career in Poland before moving to London to work at the Sheraton Park Tower. Roles at The The Grove, The Montagu Restaurant at the Hyatt Regency and Hyatt Regency in Russia followed before he moved to manage all F&B operations at the 414-bedroom Beaumont Estate in Windsor.
Since joining Aviator in 2015 as director of operations, Skrzypczak has been instrumental in a number of successes including, the hotel attaining its four AA Red Star status, the opening of the hotel’s gastropub The Swan, coordinating two Farnborough International Airshows and contributing to year-on-year growth in revenue and performance.
Adam said: “Having seen first-hand how the business has grown from strength to strength over the past few years, I am looking forward to building upon these successes by leading the hotel through this period of uncertainty and positioning it on a route for growth, alongside a dynamic and dedicated team that I already know and respect.”
In addition to Adam’s appointment, further management changes at the hotel include the promotion of Magda Gora to director of rooms, Fabrizio Braga to director of food and beverage, both of whom will be joining the hotel’s executive team, and the promotion of meetings and events manager Vicky Trevaskis to the senior management team.
