Both Beattie and McMahon will join the resort’s senior management team. Beattie joined Wyboston Lakes Resort in 2017 as hotel manager and is responsible for overseeing the day to day running of The Waterfront Hotel including food and beverage purchasing.
He studied hospitality in North Wales where he began his career working in AA four star and Visit Wales gold award properties under a management trainee programme. He later moved to Norfolk where he worked at Barnham Broom Hotel, Spa and Golf resort as Brasserie and Sports Bar Manager and oversaw the launch of the 2 AA rosette ‘Brasserie at Barnham Broom’.
Most recently, Beattie worked at Quy Mill Hotel and Spa, Cambridge where he was “instrumental” in the hotel gaining two AA rosettes and a AA four silver star award.
McMahon spent five years on the Marriott Hotels graduate programme before joining Princess Cruises, where at 24 he became the youngest senior officer. After six years, he moved to Radisson as operations manager.
After joining Wyboston Lakes Resort in 2012 as customer services manager, McMahon was promoted to training centre manager before becoming venue manager and now GM of both Woodlands Event Centre and the Willows Training Centre.
Steve Jones, managing director of Wyboston Lakes Resort said: “I’m delighted that we’ve promoted Linden and Simon to these new positions. They are well deserved and testimony to their contribution to the business, their talent and their hard work.”
