Steve Lewis joins Lainston House as general manager

Lainston House in Winchester, part of the Exclusive Collection, has appointed Steve Lewis as general manager.

He joins the team from his most recent role as general manager at Macdonald Hotels & Resorts and was also previously a general manager with the Harbour Hotels Group.

Prior to his career in hospitality, Lewis spent 11 years in the international sports marketing industry for agencies, brands and teams.

He said: "I am absolutely delighted to be joining Lainston House and Exclusive Collection, a brand I have admired from afar both professionally and personally for a long time. Their reputation for guest experience, staff development and quality product are second to none, and I look forward to leading a fantastic team at Lainston into a new chapter of development."

Lainston House was founded in 1983 by ex-Forte Hotels executive Giuseppe Pecorelli, the second country property of the Exclusive Collection. The group now has seven properties and is run by his son and managing director, Danny Pecorelli.

Danny Pecorelli said: "We are thrilled to welcome Steve Lewis into the Collection as general manager at Lainston House and I look forward to seeing the property evolve and continue to thrive under his tutelage. I also want to extend my gratitude to Sunil Kanjanghat for the past two years at the helm at Lainston and wish him all the very best for the future."

Kanjanghat will be leaving shortly, with his next step still to be announced.
