The Grand York appoints new general manager
The Grand York has appointed Simon Mahon as general manager.
The luxury 207-bedroom hotel welcomes Mahon from his latest role with aparthotel company edyn, where he was director of operations, responsible for the opening and operations for SACO and growing the Locke brand.
Mahon replaces Philip Bolson, who departed the hotel earlier this year in March to join Lake District Hotels as managing director.
Prior to his role with edyn, Mahon boasts over 20 years’ experience in the sector having previously worked at the likes of Park Plaza and Whitbread.
He says: “We have so much available to make a visit special, from taking a class at our Cookery School to enjoying a glass of fizz in one of our lounges. We’re looking forward to making the hotel, not just a place to sleep, but a hub of activity and a destination in itself.”
