Leisure operator Cairn Group has bolstered its workforce, making a number of senior appointments and promotions across its portfolio.
The group owns and operates 33 hotels and more than 30 bars and restaurants around the UK, and has welcomed several new faces and filled opportunities by fast-tracking some top performers.
At the Old Ship Hotel in Brighton, Jason Bramwell has stepped up to become general manager from deputy manager.
Another former deputy manager taking the helm is Hotel Indigo Edinburgh Princes Street’s Sarah Davidson, having progressed through the ranks from front of house to food and beverage.
After a successful year as general manager at Mercure Darlington Kings Hotel, Stuart Lloyd has relocated to Holiday Inn Scotch Corner also as general manager, with a focus on service and guest satisfaction.
Elsewhere, Cheryl Broadley has joined Holiday Inn Express Wakefield as general manager, having worked across several of Cairn Group’s properties, and David Jones who heads up Crowne Plaza Gerrards Cross in Slough has taken a dual role to oversee the running of nearby Stoke Place in Buckinghamshire.
Richard Adams, HR director at Cairn Group said: “At Cairn Group our employees are at the heart of our operations, making our properties desirable places to stay whether on business or for leisure. We heavily focus on staff development and encourage progression, recognising hard work and enthusiasm. It’s fantastic to see members of the team take the next steps in their careers with us, as well as welcome experienced individuals into the business who we are very excited to have on board.”
