New appointments as group prepares for reopening
CRERAR Hotels has bolstered its team as it looks ahead to reopening in the coming months.
The group, whose seven-strong portfolio comprises Loch Fyne Hotel & Spa, Thainstone House, Oban Bay Hotel, Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa, Golf View, The Glencoe Inn and Deeside Inn, has appointed Alison MacLeod as group marketing manager and Jodie Wilson as group revenue manager. Alison joins Crerar Hotels from Trump Turnberry Resort and brings a wealth of experience in the hospitality sector from across the UK and around the world, including eight years in Dubai and Abu Dhabi with Marriott International; while Jodie has more than 15 years of experience in the hotel and leisure industry, having worked for the likes of Macdonald Hotels, Marriott International, the Midland Hotel in Manchester.
The appointments come as Crerar Hotels carries out major refurbishments of its Isle of Mull Hotel & Spa and Glencoe Inn properties.
Chris Wayne-Wills, chief executive of Crerar Hotels, said Alison and Jodie will be “instrumental in ensuring that the hotels and packages are perfectly suited to meet the needs of post-lockdown guests”.
“As a group, we recognise the importance of investing in our product and our people to ensure we ride out this turbulent period,” he said.
“We are striving to provide our guests with an unforgettable experience and thanks to our recent substantial investments in our properties, we are confident, we can deliver. Alison and Jodie are a perfect fit for Crerar and are amongst the best in the business in their respective disciplines.
“As the industry re-awakens from this period, with the right team in place, we are now poised to embrace the next chapter.”
