The Frogmill hotel in Cheltenham has appointed Ben Gaignierre as hotel manager. Gaignierre started as a part-time waiter at the Chesford Grange hotel in Warwickshire. In 2000 he left for the Legacy Falcon hotel in Stratford-upon-Avon, where he was promoted to food and beverage manager within three years. Since then he has been developing his management experience at Legacy Hotels & Resorts venues across the UK.
"I've built up valuable experience working at Legacy hotels up and down the country over the last four years and, although this is a very challenging role and there's a lot of hard work ahead, it's a challenge I'm already really enjoying," Gaignierre said.
