Tom Ross has been appointed as Operations Director at Home Grown Hotels.
Tom, who was previously Operations Director at THE PIG-near Bath and THE PIG-at Combe, will now work across the group's ever-growing portfolio.
Two other long-standing Hotel Directors, Lora Strizic and Jorge Gertrudes each add a hotel to their existing responsibilities.
Robin Hutson, CEO, said: “We are absolutely delighted to announce this position, in five years Home Grown Hotels has grown to be a £20m business. In 2017 we will have five operating hotels and two in the pipeline, 500-plus staff, occupancy north of 90% and serve an average of 600-700 covers a day. I personally have run out of bandwidth and need additional help on the operational side which will allow me to concentrate on developing the product and working with Judy on new sites.
"Tom is the perfect guy for this critical operations job, he knows our way and the Pig product inside out, he is a great food and beverage operator and is passionate about developing people.”
