Recently united Whittlebury Park and Whittlebury Hall & Spa has reappointed Marc Webster as Commercial Director to firmly establish the Northamptonshire estate as one of the UK’s leading resorts and MICE destinations.
Reporting directly to managing director Charles Sargeant, the highly-experienced commercial director – who was Whittlebury’s group sales director for four years until 2008 – will lead the commercial team from 5 June to deliver record-breaking results and support the delivery of its EBITDA target.
With an impressive track record of delivering sales growth within high-profile hospitality businesses, Marc was most recently head of sales at Jurys Inn where, over the last six years, he established its structure across its portfolio of 42 properties.
Prior to that, he was director of regional sales across 21 properties with QHotels and held roles with the Metropole Hotel Group, now owned by Hilton, as well as Thomas Cook and the Paramount Hotel Group where he specialised in conferences and events.
Charles Sargeant, managing director of Whittlebury Park and Whittlebury Hall & Spa, said: “We are delighted to welcome Marc back to Whittlebury as he has always had strong ties to the estate from both a professional and personal perspective as he even married here in 2004.
“Marc joins at a really exciting period of growth and expansion. During his four successful years at Whittlebury Hall Marc recognised the importance – and the potential – of having a fully integrated business across the whole estate. His long-held ambition was to return to the estate upon its integration so it’s fantastic that he will re-join and lead our commercial team next month.”
