Grange near Kenilworth in Warwickshire, while Joanne Hammick is
promoted to General Manager at the nearby Stratford Manor.
Chris was previously responsible for Stratford Manor and The
Stratford hotels as cluster GM, while Joanne spent two years as GM

QHotels' 26 conference and events venues. Its extensive spaces

flexed depending on the client's needs, and our recent VenueVerdict
Gold accreditation is testament to our team's commitment to always
exceeding those needs," said Chris.
Chris has been a hotel general manager for the past 12 years,
having worked previously for the likes of Principal Hotels,
Malmaison, De Vere, Champneys and Marriott. He is in his second
spell with QHotels, having run Hellidon Lakes and The Stratford
during his first period with the group.
"I've always got a great buzz from working in hotels,
particularly on the events side," he said. "When you're delivering
conferences and events, no day is the same. That variety delivers
huge job satisfaction, which help us to provide great experiences
Joanne spent five years at Billesley Manor, Stratford-upon-Avon,
before joining QHotels two years ago as GM at Hellidon Lakes.
"I really enjoy working in Stratford. We're in a unique part of
the world, with so much history, which has as many benefits for our
corporate customers as it does for our leisure guests.
"We have 21 acres of beautiful grounds, which are ideal if you
want to take your event outdoors, or you just need some peace and
tranquillity, but we also have all the attractions of Stratford on
our doorstep. It's what makes us such a popular conference
and events venue."
Michael Purtill, Managing Director at QHotels, added: "I would
like to personally congratulate Chris and Joanne, who have
thoroughly earned their promotions.
"Between them they have had almost 20 years in senior roles
within the hotel industry, but it's their passion for delivering a
memorable experience for each and every customer that will drive
the future success of Chesford Grange and Stratford
