Wynyard Hall Hotel and Spa, Tees Valley, has recruited social and digital media expert Ben Lambotte, from Billingham, to the role of marketing coordinator.
Along with promoting all aspects of the hotel’s operation to the corporate, wedding and leisure sectors, Ben will be a key member of the team overseeing the launch of the second phase of The Gardens at Wynyard Hall.
The Gardens is a £4m project within the 25-bedroom hotel’s grounds, which began with the installation of a Grand Marquee, able to host up to 700 guests for weddings and corporate functions.
The second stage is the Walled Garden, which will open to the public in August. Created by multi RHS award-winning landscape architect Alistair Baldwin, it will contain around 3,000 roses in a planting scheme which combines traditional and contemporary design.
Ben joins Wynyard Hall from clothing retail company Urban Surfer where he was marketing and operations manager.
Wynyard Hall managing director Allison Antonopoulos said: “He is joining us at an incredibly exciting and important time. The Walled Garden is going to be breathtakingly beautiful and will attract visitors from far and wide so we are delighted to have him on board.”
Ben said: “Wynyard Hall is one of the most spectacular venues in the region and I’m thoroughly looking forward to making sure as many people as possible discover that for themselves.”
