Boutique lifestyle hotel brands Malmaison and Hotel du Vin have announced a number of senior appointments within the business.
Hotel du Vin Birmingham has welcomed Tom Gallimore to the GM’s position, who has been promoted from his role of hotel manager and deputy general manager at Malmaison Birmingham.
Marie Warabida joins Malmaison London as general manager, having previously been general manager at Malmaison Reading, as well as financial positions at both Malmaison and Millennium & Copthorne.
Replacing Warabida as general manager at Malmaison Reading is James Henesey. He joined Malmaison Hotel du Vin as bar manager, and following his participation in the business’s Rising Star development programme, progressed to become deputy general manager at the hotel, the role he held prior to his appointment.
Scott Harper, chief operating officer of Malmaison and Hotel du Vin, commented: “The development of our team is hugely important, and these appointments are testament to the fantastic talent pool in our business that allows us to grow from within. I’m delighted to promote Tom, Marie and James and wish them every success in their new roles.
“Their experience and steadfast focus on fantastic customer service makes me confident that they’ll continue to excel. I look forward to working with them to build on the great things that each of their hotels is doing both with its people and within its local community.”
It was revealed in May that former COO at Hotel du Vin Nick Halliday had left the business to pursue other ventures, stepping down after four years.
Hotel du Vin has just opened its newest property in Stratford-upon-Avon and will soon launch The Avon Gorge by Hotel du Vin in Clifton Village, Bristol as the brand continues to expand.
