Scottish hotel group hires new staff to prepare for potential spring reopening


Crerar Hotels has appointed staff to senior roles as it prepares for the reopening of hospitality businesses in the coming months.

The Scottish hotel group has named Alison MacLeod as group marketing manager and Jodie Wilson as group revenue manager.

MacLeod will oversee the company’s marketing strategy, moving from a similar position at Trump Turnberry Resort. She also worked for Marriott International in Dubai and Abu Dhabi for eight years.

Wilson has more than 15 years of experience working with Macdonald Hotels, Marriott International and the Specialist Leisure Group.

In addition to the two new arrivals, the group is further extending the team with group marketing executive Lesley Ross, and is on the search for a new group revenue executive.

Crerar Hotels recently announced significant investment in its Isle of Mull and Glencoe Inn hotels, amounting to more than £3.5m.

The investment in Mull will also result in an increase in the team, with new positions of operations manager, spa therapists and food and beverage team members being sought.

Chris Wayne-Wills, chief executive at Crerar Hotel Group, 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.”

Wilson added: “This is a vital moment to be joining the group as we work hard to emerge from the latest lockdown.

“With major investment reaffirming our commitment to delivering a boost to the industry, we’re working hard as a team to ensure all our guests receive the warm Crerar welcome they have come to expect.”

Earlier this week it was announced that from 26 April, Scotland will be returning to tier three restrictions, as the country is slowly taken out of lockdown.

Under level three, Scots are expected to remain within their local authority area, meaning staycations will be able to resume by May, although no indication was given as to when tourists from outside Scotland will be allowed to travel.
