As of August 2017, The Seren Collection, a group of hotels and restaurants in South Wales, has welcomed a host of new appointments as it strengthens its management team across the business.
The group, which includes Grove of Narberth, Coast Restaurant in Saundersfoot and Beach House in the Gower Peninsular has announced these appointments in a bid to further develop the quality of the group’s delivery over the coming years.
The Grove of Narberth has welcomed a new reception and reservations manager, Karen Weisheit, who joins with a wealth of experience at the likes of Cliveden, Gidleigh Park and Mallory Court.
The Collection as a whole has created a new role of group food and beverage manager for Alice Bussi, who launched Beach House Restaurant with head chef Hywel Griffith in 2016 having joined from Bath Priory.
Oliver Crittenden has also been promoted to group human resources manager of The Seren Collection, and as a graduate of the 10 out of 10 Management Trainee Programme, he boasts experience at top-class establishments such as Cliveden, Pennyhill Park, Chewton Glen, Gidleigh Park and Lucknam Park.
To top off the new joiners, Katherine Morgant has been appointed as restaurant manager at Beach House; Alexandra Marcher joins as head sommelier at Beach House and Rhianna Chilton joins as assistant restaurant manager at Coast.
Neil Kedward, managing director of Seren Collection said: “As a business we love change and people developing and so it comes as no surprise that our teams keep evolving. This is a big step for the group strengthening our ability to support our businesses from the centre whilst significantly bolstering the management teams in each of our businesses. Congratulations to Alice, Oliver and Karen on their promotions, whilst we are also delighted to welcome Katherine, Alexandra and Rhianna to South West Wales.”
The group are in the process of finding a new head chef to take over the reins at Coast Restaurant, following the upcoming departure of Will Holland after three and a half years of service.
