Graeme Nesbitt appointed executive general manager of two Puma hotels

Graeme Nesbitt has been appointed executive general manager of two adjacent hotels within the Puma Hotels Collection, which was formerly known as Barceló UK.

He will oversee the 56-bedroom Walton Hall, which dates back to the 16th century, and the contemporary, 130-bedroom Walton Hotel, which share a 65-acre site near Stratford-upon-Avon in Warwickshire. Both hotels are four-star properties.

Until recently, Nesbitt was general manager of the Mere Golf Resort & Spa in Cheshire, which was heralded as one of the most prominent hotel openings in the North-west of England for several years when it launched in March. He had joined the property last year from De Vere Cameron House at Loch Lomond, where he was general manager.

Meanwhile, Joel Fagg, the 2011 Acorn Scholar, is to leave Walton Hall as operations manager, to take up his first general manager position at the Palace hotel in Buxton, Derbyshire, another property in the Puma Hotels Collection, on 20 August.
