Head, who has lived in the Farnborough area all of his life, brings more than 15 years’ of experience within the hotel and hospitality industry to the post, having worked his way up from a bar team leader position in 2003.
Since then, he has established management and operations experience across brands including Ramada Jarvis, DoubleTree by Hilton and other Holiday Inn properties. He joins the team from his previous role as hotel manager at the Holiday Inn High Wycombe.
Head said: “I’m thrilled to be back at the Holiday Inn Farnborough as General Manager and leading the great team we have here. Having previously held the position as hotel Operations Manager it’s an exciting time to return to this established property and continue to work with the local community.
“Following the major refurbishment work, the property is looking fantastic and I hope to build further on this hard work by ensuring our customer service and the guest experience is at the forefront of all we do as a team.”
Operated by Interstate Hotels and Resorts, the Holiday Inn Farnborough underwent a vast refurbishment in 2018, transforming the property throughout.
Nicholas Northam, at Interstate, added: “On behalf of everyone at Interstate, it’s great to welcome Robert to the Holiday Inn Farnborough. The hotel has been transformed over the last year and under Robert’s leadership, I’m sure it’ll continue to go from strength to strength.”
