Rocco Forte Hotels Announces New Sales Appointments In Edinburgh & Manchester

Rocco Forte Hotels are pleased to announce two new sales appointments in their luxury hotels in Edinburgh and Manchester.

Susan Reid has joined The Balmoral in Edinburgh from the Crowne Plaza in Edinburgh where she was Director of Sales. Following her time at Queen Margaret College, Edinburgh, where she studied Hotel Catering and Institutional Management, she joined The Balmoral in 1991 for its reopening by Peter Tyrie, working in the hotel`s front office. She then moved to Stakis Hotels where she was Sales Manager for the Scottish market.

Murray Thomson, who held this position prior to Susan`s arrival at The Balmoral, has relocated to The Lowry Hotel in Manchester where he has been appointed Director of Business Development. Murray will focus on the implementation of long-term sales and marketing strategy and the professional development of the sales & marketing team.

Says Murray, “I am pleased to be joining a hotel that is already enjoying business success through offering a high-quality product and superior service standards, and I am very much looking forward to the challenge of taking it into the future.”

Susan Reid commented, “I am delighted to be back at The Balmoral. It is a beautiful hotel and I look forward to contributing to its success within the Rocco Forte Hotel collection.”
