Former Group GM at Whittlebury Hall, Mark Jones, has been appointed Managing Director of Wyboston Lakes Venues, the UK’s largest privately owned single site specialist conference and training centre. He takes up his position on 25 July.
Wyboston Lakes Venues this year celebrates its 21st year of operation. Since it opened, more than £35m has been spent in developing the site as a provider for both day and residential events.
“The high quality management training and conference market is a specialised field and, having spent the last six years heading up one privately owned award-winning operation in this market, I am particularly pleased to be joining another highly regarded, award-winning and forward thinking team,” said Jones.
“With owners that continue to be committed to growth and development, the future is very positive indeed,” he added.
Jones is the former GM of the Victoria Falls Hotel in Zimbabwe and has worked widely in some of the best hotels in Africa.
In 1997 Jones was appointed UK Operations Director of Center Parcs and, in 2001, he became Director of Operations of the Eden Project.
Former MD of Wyboston Lakes Venues Nigel Hollis moves to non-executive Deputy Chairman with the company’s venues business and will lead its property division as Managing Director.
