Pullman Liverpool appoints Neil Brailsford as general manager

Neil Brailsford has been appointed general manager of Pullman Liverpool, the new upscale business-branded property from AccorHotels, which is due to open in January 2016.

He joins the 216-bedroom hotel, which will be operated under a franchise agreement by Branded Hotel Management, from the Mercure Southampton, which he joined five years ago.

The new-build hotel will form part of the new Exhibition Centre Liverpool, which will double the existing facilities at the Arena and Convention Centre Liverpool.

Brailsford, a former Acorn Award winner, will be responsible for recruiting the rest of the Pullman team.

"I am delighted to be involved in such an exciting project and look forward to both working and living in Liverpool," he said. "The completed hotel will be superb and my focus is to ensure the service we offer our guests is also of the highest quality."

Garin Davies, group operations director of hotel Branded Hotel Management, added: "The Pullman hotel will bring a new level of contemporary design and service to the Liverpool hotel scene and Neil's wealth of experience is ideal for this type of project. We welcome him to Liverpool."

The hotel is the second Pullman hotel in the UK, following the launch of a 312-bedroom property in London St Pancras in 2012.
