Parks’ hospitality management experience pans over two decades, with over 18 years holding general management positions in various hotel brands across the country. Parks was head-hunted by Axcel Hospitality having successfully assisted with the opening of their headquarter hotel in Croydon over six years ago.
AC Hotels opened its first purpose-built hotel in mainland UK in the heart of Manchester city centre on 16 October. The luxury 172-bedroom hotel features a Spanish-European kitchen, bar, library, function facilities and a relaxing co-working space, the AC Lounge.
Parks said: “I am thrilled to join the team at the new AC Hotel Manchester City Centre in my new role as general manager. This is my first hotel position in the city and is a perfect opportunity for me to utilise my extensive understanding of the hotel industry. As general manager, my duty is to ensure each and every guest will receive an exceptional customer experience throughout their stay.”
