With over 25 years’ experience in the hotel and hospitality industry, including two years as chief operating officer at Leaf Hospitality, Magrane brings a wealth of expertise to the position.
His role will be centred around driving operational excellence across the portfolio, which more than doubled in size over the course of the past year after 17 IHG hotels, the Courtyard by Marriott Edinburgh and two luxury properties that are currently in development, were placed under its management.
Magrane will also be helping to develop talent within the business, something which Valor prides itself on through its in-house Future Leaders programme.
