Jason Adams has been appointed general manager of The Lygon Arms in Broadway, the Cotswolds, part of the Iconic Luxury Hotels portfolio.
Adams will join the management team on April 3, coming from his role as GM at Foxhills Club and Resort in Surrey.
Prior to this he gained experience in management roles at the likes of Belmond Le Manoir Aux Quat’Saisons; Seaham Hall Hotel & Serenity Spa; The Atlantic Hotel, Jersey; and the Arden Hotel in Stratford upon Avon.
Adams will take over from Graeme Nesbitt at The Lygon Arms who moves on after two years at the helm.
A second key management appointment for The Lygon Arms has also been announced with the internal promotion of Edward Fitzpatrick, who currently works for Iconic Luxury Hotels, in the role of operations manager at the five-red star Chewton Glen.
He will work alongside Adams as deputy general manager.
Commenting on these appointments, Andrew Stembridge, managing director of Iconic Luxury Hotels, said: “This is a very exciting time for Jason and Ed to be joining the team at The Lygon Arms. We have just unveiled the final chapter of its multi-million-pound refurbishment and expansion.
“I am certain that the experience and wealth of knowledge that Jason and Ed will bring to their respective roles will restore The Lygon Arms to its position as one of the finest historic coaching inns in the UK.”
Adams said: “I am thrilled to be taking over The Lygon Arms from such an inspired general manager as Graeme Nesbitt, who has done a tremendous job guiding the property through its renovation phase, it is such a remarkable property with great potential and now with the restoration completed, we can all look forward to the exciting opportunities this wonderful property presents”.
