Steve Jones has succeeded Mark Jones (no relation) as managing director of Wyboston Lakes Limited following Mark’s promotion to deputy chairman.
Steve joined the 380-acre site in 2015 as operations director, after a stint overseeing The Beaumont Estate, a 400-bedroom resort with 75 meeting rooms.
Prior to this he built up 25 years of experience with the likes of Corus & Regal Hotels and Four Pillars Hotels before the group was acquired by Starwood in 2014.
Now as part of his new role at Wyboston Lakes Resort, he will focus on driving business to the property’s new £3m conference and event facilities.
Located between Milton Keynes and Cambridge, the resort is set in a 380 acre rural site which boasts over 400 bedrooms, more than 70 meeting rooms, a full spa, 18 hole golf course, health & leisure club, team building & activity centre and over 60,000sqft of service office space.
Steve Jones says “This role is a dream opportunity for a hotelier. Following major refurbishments in the hotel and the £3m investment in transforming our conferences and events facilities, the future here is exciting and I cannot wait to get started on leading the resort and its staff through its next chapter.”
In his new role as deputy chairman, Mark Jones will be responsible for identifying opportunities and progressing the development of the company’s land both on and off the resort.
