Sunil Kanjanghat has announced he is to join Fawsley Hall Hotel as general manager, following his departure from Lainston House.
Revealing his new position on LinkedIn, Kanjanghat said he was ‘looking forward to the new and exciting role’ with the hotel, which is part of the Hand Picked Hotels portfolio headed up by Julia Hands.
He said: “I am looking forward to working closely with other great industry leaders, Mark Clayton and Douglas Waddell, who has already made me feel very welcome and I looking forward to meeting my new team at Hand Picked Hotel in October.”
It is thought he will replace Karl Wood.
Kanjanghat has previously been general manager at Lainston House in Winchester since February 2019.
The luxury hotel is part of the Exclusive Collection of hotels overseen by managing director Danny Pecorelli.
In his LinkedIn post, Kanjanghat paid tribute to Pecorelli calling him a ‘great mentor’ and a leader that ‘motivates and hugely supports his team when they need him’.
It was announced in August that Steve Lewis would be taking up the role of GM at Lainston House, joining from Macdonald Hotels.
This summer, Fawsley Hall Hotel unveiled its new spa development after a £1.5m investment.
Hand Picked Hotels was founded in 2001 by owner, Chairman and CEO, Julia Hands MBE and comprises 19 hotels.
