Senior appointments revealed at Manchester’s dual-branded hotel

Andrea Baron and Samantha Byrne have joined Manchester’s dual-branded Crowne Plaza and Staybridge Suites.

Baron has become sales manager of the first Staybridge Suites to open in Manchester – after joining from The Lowry Hotel.

Byrne has landed the Crowne Plaza sales manager role after leaving the Holiday Inn near Piccadilly train station.

Andrew Fletcher, general manager of the dual-branded hotel, commented on the crucial hires.

“Samantha was heavily involved in the opening of Holiday Inn and has worked at The Malmaison, Hilton Manchester Deansgate and the National Football Museum, while Andrea boasts experience in serviced apartments too, having been part of the SACO Piccadilly ApartHotel team,” said Andrew.

“We feel they are the perfect fit for each brand and are delighted that they have come on board during what is a truly exciting period as we continue to near our opening date.”
