Mark Gallagher appointed general manager of Crowne Plaza Glasgow

Mark Gallagher has been appointed general manager of the 283-bedroom Crowne Plaza Glasgow.

Gallagher, a former head of the Glasgow Hotelier's Association, brings almost 25-years' experience to the InterContinental Hotels Group venue, which is operated by Valor Hospitality Europe.

He will be responsible for overseeing the commercial success of the Crowne Plaza Glasgow, which has conference space for up to 800 people, as well as spa and fitness facilities.

Mark Gallagher said: "Valor Hospitality Europe has a tremendous reputation in the industry for embracing the brands they operate, and this contributed to my decision to join the team.

"Crowne Plaza Glasgow has always been one of my favourite hotels, and its proximity to the SEC Campus provides new challenges and opportunities. I'll be ensuring that we focus on our guests, our people and our brand, whilst sticking to Valor's values and belief in ‘doing the simple things brilliantly'."

"It's important that we retain and attract the very best team members for our hotels as I'm a firm believer that talent attracts talent, and under Mark's leadership, I have no doubt that the Crowne Plaza Glasgow will continue to go from strength to strength."
