 – Fairmont Windsor Park Announces Hotel Leadership Team For What Will Be The UK’s Most Exciting Opening In 2021 – 

 

London, 17 February 2021Fairmont Windsor Park, part of the Arora Group and in partnership with Fairmont Hotels and Resorts, today unveiled its senior team taking on the prestigious and enviable task of opening what promises to be one of the most anticipated new hotels of 2021. Arora Group purchased The Savill Court Hotel & Spa which is now the site for the Fairmont Windsor Park after a complete redevelopment of the former building and grounds.

 

Leading the team is General Manager Andrew Brown MI who brings over 25 years of hospitality experience to this luxury opening. Andrew was recently awarded Master Innholder, the highest recognition of excellence within the worldwide hotel industry.

 

Supporting Andrew with the day to day running of the hotel will be Director of Operations, Jessica Podolsky, who joins from Starwood and Marriott and was previously involved with the re-opening of the Turnberry Golf Resort in Scotland. Jessica’s inspirational leadership qualities resulted in her being named ‘London’s Manager of the Year’ by Marriott.

 

Front of House Manager, James Lane, and Sigita Baltrusaitiene, Executive Housekeeper, will make up the rooms division team. With previous front of house experience with Raffles, Swisshotel and six years with Fairmont The Palm in Dubai, James will lead a front office team that will define luxury at its very best and in way that the Fairmont customer has become accustomed to. Sigita is a veteran of 18 years at the Arora Group, where she worked her way up from room attendant to Executive Housekeeper of the Heathrow Hotels. Sigita’s passion for her profession will make every guest feel like royalty from the moment they step into the building.

 

Fairmont Windsor Park aims to create wonderful experiences and memories with its food and beverage offering and this responsibility lands on the very experienced shoulders of Director of Food and Beverage, Patrick Mudalige. A former chef as part of the opening team at the 7-star Hotel Burj al Arab, Patrick has worked his way up through the food and beverage areas with leadership roles at Marriott, Hilton, Accor, Leading Hotels and Jumeirah across a number of countries.

 

The leadership team also includes two commercial roles with John Swift and Katarina Nielsen as Sales Director and Marketing & Communications Director respectively. With several sales’ leadership roles including at MGallery and Mercure, extensive experience within the events and corporate markets and a passion to create lasting relationships with his clients, John will undoubtably serve the Fairmont customer well. Katarina has held several senior marketing roles both within the hospitality industry with The Savoy London, and with luxury brands such as Aston Martin.

 

Commenting on the above appointments, Andrew Brown said “We are absolutely delighted and excited to be opening Fairmont Windsor Park and I am confident that my team has the experience and skill to embrace the opportunity. We can’t wait to welcome back those many guests both at home in the UK and overseas who are so looking forward to travel again and enjoy luxury hospitality”.

 

The recruitment of the remaining senior team is being finalised, with further announcements planned for the appointment of the Executive Chef and Director of Spa and Wellness.
