The newly-formed hotel management company Inverlochy Castle Management International (ICMI) is looking to expand its business throughout the UK.
Managing director Norbert Lieder said that the company will help hotels to bring in business and ensure that they operate efficiently.
"A unique feature of the company is that it is able to offer owners of small and medium sized hotels a high level of expertise in an affordable way," he said.
Lieder, who was formerly general manager of Inverlochy Castle, is supported by chairman Dr Sin Chai, culinary consultant Albert Roux, John Green (sales and marketing), Darius Sanai (media), Kathleen Fraser (interior design) and Kerry Watson (operations).
ICMI is currently running Inverlochy Castle, Fort William; Rocpool Reserve, Inverness; Banefield House, Ayrshire; and Villa Giuseppina; as well as overseeing the refurbishment of two other properties - the 23 bedroom Greywalls, near Edinburgh, and the 21-bedroom Inver Lodge, Lochinver - which will both re-open in the spring.
