QHotels has appointed renowned hotelier Andrew Fox as regional general manager for the group’s northern hotels – a role which includes the position of on-site general manager at Slaley Hall, in Northumberland.
In addition to his position at Slaley Hall, Fox – who has more than 20 years’ experience with some of the UK’s best-known hotel brands – will oversee operations at two further QHotels golf resorts: Aldwark Manor, near York, and the Westerwood Hotel, near Glasgow.
Fox, who has previously been the brand’s regional general manager for the Midlands, said: “It’s great to make the move back to QHotels and to maintain an active role in the leisure business in the North-East, a region that has become very important to me. I’m keen to reinstate Slaley Hall’s reputation as a luxury resort. Set in 1,000 acres of Northumberland countryside, the hotel has something for everyone, from taking a luxury spa or activity break, to using its meeting or corporate golf facilities.”
Michael Purtill, managing director of QHotels, said: “Not only does Andrew have significant experience of managing prestigious hotels and resorts across the UK, he also has a great track record and deep understanding of business in the North-East region. It’s fantastic to welcome him back to the QHotels management team.”
