Kevin Keenan is the new general manager at The Thurlestone Hotel, Devon.
Keenan will be responsible for all the day-to-day aspects of the operation of the hotel, which has been owned and run by the Grose family for almost 120-years.
He brings with him a ‘wealth of experience’ having held management positions across Scotland and the UK, most recently at the Green Hotel Golf & Leisure Resort in Kinross, Scotland.
Matthew Grose, the hotel’s managing director, said: “We are really excited that Kevin is joining our team here at the Thurlestone Hotel. We had all hoped our paths might cross again after working together at Dryburgh Abbey, so we are delighted to welcome him south of the border. He’s got some fantastic experience behind him and is ideally placed to help take full advantage of some of the big developments that are coming up in 2016, and to help the hotel continue to go from strength to strength.”
