MacNaughton, who was named one of the company’s ‘rising stars’, joins the company’s executive committee having previously worked as group capital manager.
After graduating from Glasgow Caledonian University with an MSc in Construction Project Management, MacNaughton first joined the company as the group property manager, role which he held for eight years. He then was promoted to head of property with Principal Hotel Company and returned to RBH after three years.
MacNaughton said: “To be given the opportunity to support the RBH Executive Committee is wonderful. I’m absolutely committed to ensuring we continue delivering successful key capital projects in order to offer the best value – and boost returns – for our owners.”
Helder Pereira, RBH’s CEO, said: “Gregor has already played a pivotal role during his time with RBH, contributing massively to the successful delivery of a number of projects over the years. Our business is constantly growing in line with our ambition to become Europe’s leading independent hotel management company, and I’m sure Gregor will perfectly complement the work of our strong and experienced Executive Committee as we strive towards achieving this goal.”
