The Radisson Blu Hotel, Bristol, part of the rapidly-expanding Rezidor Hotel Group, has appointed Christopher Peach as the General Manager of the Radisson Blu Hotel, Bristol. Christopher brings managerial experience and a range of other hospitality-related skills to the position.
Christopher has an extensive background in the hospitality industry, spanning 23 years. Having started his career in 1987 as Commis Chef aboard the Queen Elizabeth II cruise liner, he has since held various management positions at different international hotel chains in South Africa, China, Bahrain, UAE, Turkey and Russia.
This new appointment has Christopher returning to his native Britain, where he will manage one of only a few waterfront hotels in Bristol city centre. Though this is the first time Christopher will work at the Hotel Bristol, he isn’t new to Rezidor, having joined the hotel company in February 2011 as Executive Assistant Manager of the Park Inn by Radisson Pribaltiyskaya in St. Petersburg. His role at this Russian hotel was Christopher’s most recent position.
In addition to his experience in the hotel industry, Christopher holds a Diploma as Chef from the Bournemouth and Poole College of Further Education in the UK. Acclaimed as a young chef, Christopher won the regional and national Junior Chaîne Des Rôtisseurs Competition, and represented South Africa in the World Finals in Germany. Among his many additional professional qualifications, Christopher holds a Master in Food Services Management from Cornell University. Though Christopher is filling a management role, and not working as part of the hotel’s food service team, his experience in this field will undoubtedly help him in his position as General Manager.
