De Vere Selsdon Estate, part of the De Vere portfolio of country estate hotels and event destinations, has announced the appointment of Richard Clogg as general manager.
Clogg has more than 20 years’ experience in the industry and will oversee the leisure and corporate business and day-to-day running of the hotel.
Laurie Nicol, COO at De Vere, said: “We are delighted to welcome Richard to the helm of De Vere Selsdon Estate. Richard has exceptional credentials and knowledge within the industry, and we know that he will provide strong and effective leadership to enable the estate to continue to deliver remarkable results. We’re looking forward to working alongside him in his new role.”
Clogg added: “I am thrilled to be joining the De Vere Selsdon Estate team. This move brings a new and exciting challenge for me. The property has an illustrious history, having been held by the Knights Templar in 1042AD and serving as Henry VIII’s palace of choice when secretly courting Anne Boleyn, and I’m honoured to become part of the latest chapter in its story.”
The hotel recently underwent a multi-million-pound, top-to-toe refurbishment which saw the opening of its 1042 Restaurant and Bar.
