Joining from his role as regional director for Macdonald Hotels and Resorts in 1997, Paul has spent 40 years in the hotel industry with half of this time at the Cresta Court.
During his tenure, Paul has seen business grow strongly with turnover doubled and the hotel transformed with a series of improvements including most recently a £1.5m refurbishment.
“The last three years have seen a completely new-look for the Hotel, ensuring that we continue to meet the expectations of travellers, diners and delegates in 2017, and beyond,” he said.
“I am also proud to have been able to support the wider developments in our community. Altrincham is a transformed town.
“By using its heritage as an historic market town as the focus for a stunning new market area, where exceptional local foods, new restaurants and handmade crafts combine, we can offer visitors a unique experience.
“The Hotel has been at the forefront in supporting the improvements which have benefited residents, as well as making Altrincham a more appealing destination for our guests and event delegates.”
