Nick Halliday, the former COO at Hotel du Vin, has moved to the isles of Scilly to head up the family-owned Tresco Estate.
Halliday, who departed the boutique brand HdV in May 2018 after four years in the role, joined the hospitality business in April this year after managing a number of London-based projects as part of his own consultancy business, Stand Out Hospitality.
According to reports, now in his new role as chief executive at the Tresco Estate, he will aim to ensure the island becomes a year-round resort and increase its popularity during the shoulder months.
The Tresco Estate is owned by the Duchy of Cornwall and leased to the Dorrien-Smith family who operate the businesses on site. Halliday will oversee the 24-bedroom Hell Bay hotel on the neighbouring island of Bryher as well as the 16-bedroom New Inn, the Flying Boat bistro and Ruin Beach café on the Isle of Scilly.
Prior to his position with Hotel du Vin, Halliday was managing director at Andrew Brownsword Hotels from September 2004 to February 2014.
