Andrew Coggings appointed MD of Goodwood entertaining & hospitality

The Goodwood Estate has announced the appointment of Andrew Coggings as managing director of its entertaining and hospitality division, effective 23 May.

He replaces Rupert Spurgeon, who departed the group earlier this year following four years with the group and one year in the role.

Following time in Dubai, South Africa and Malaysia, Coggings became the general manager of Brown's Mayfair before taking on Slaley Hall, Northumberland and the Grand hotel in Brighton. For 10 years he owned a business comprising two pubs and a restaurant in Brighton, which he sold 18 months ago. Since then he has been a regional managing director for Macdonald Hotels.

His role will include overseeing the Goodwood hotel and health club, four restaurants, private members' club the Kennels, and Hound Lodge, a 10-bedroom luxury retreat. The division also manages the relationship with Goodwood's catering partner Rhubarb.

Lord March, executive chairman of Goodwood, said: "I am very pleased we have been able to attract someone of his calibre and leadership and I, along with the senior management team, look forward to welcoming him to the business."

Coggings said: "Although there is already a world class offering at Goodwood, I believe there is still great potential for development and growth. I am very much looking forward to working with such a strong leadership team and creating the most wonderful experiences for the one million people who come to the Estate each year."
