Dalata Hotel Group appoints non-executive director

Following Dalata Hotel Group’s recent board appointments, the group will have reportedly achieved gender equality on its board from January 2022.

Dalata Hotel Group has announced the appointment of Gervaise Slowey as an independent non-executive director, and she will join the board on 1 December.

Slowey is a chartered company director and a certified bank director with a background in senior management, international marketing and media.

She has served as a non-executive director with Draper Esprit plc, Wells Fargo Bank International, Eason Retail plc, and, until recently, Ulster Bank Ireland. 

Previously, Slowey was CEO of Communicorp (now Bauer Media Audio Ireland), Ireland’s largest independent radio group for four years to the end of 2016, and prior to that she held senior roles in Ogilvy Worldwide for 16 years, most recently as global client director. 

John Hennessy, group chair, said: “I am delighted to welcome Gervaise as a director of the company. She brings a wealth of experience and expertise that will add significantly to the board and will complement the knowledge and skills of our other directors. I look forward to working with her in the coming years.

“The appointment of Gervaise represents another important step in the renewal of the independent non-executive membership of our board which, as previously announced, is taking place on a managed basis over a number of years.” 

He added: “I am also very pleased to observe that, following board appointments announced in the recent past, we will, with effect from 1 January 2022, have achieved gender equality on our board.”
