BOSSES at a Stratford hotel hope their latest staff recruitment will prove eventful.

The Stratford Park Hotel & Golf Club on Ingon Lane has hired Snehal Lakhani as its new deputy general manager in a bid to boost its events portfolio.

Snehal, from Leicester, joins the hotel with 35-years’ experience in the hospitality and events sector, working in hotels across the country and as managing director of an events company.

He was previously operations manager at Bromsgrove Hotel & Spa and has worked across brands including Crowne Plaza, Hilton and Marriot.

During his career in the events industry, Snehal delivered events for Harrods, BAFTA, Mitchell & Butler, the National Space Centre and internal events for Barclays and Santander.

The Stratford Park Hotel has expanded its calendar of events over the last 12 months, hosting a range of special brunch and lunch events, and relaunching its summer music and street food festival ‘StratFest’, which will be held on Saturday June 1.

Snehal said: “I’m pleased to be joining a beautiful family-owned hotel. It is a thriving business and has great growth potential.

“I’ll be working with the team and striving to enhance our offer, ensuring the perfect experience for our guests.

“As an independent hotel, with a stable family foundation, there are opportunities for us to be more adventurous, in particular with our events programme.

“It’s exciting to be part of a great team with ambition to deliver brilliant experiences, be that for hotel stays, events, weddings or golf days.”

General manager Beverley Haynes added: “Snehal joins us with a great pedigree in the hospitality sector and his skillset in events will be a great asset as we continue to expand that area of the business.

“We’ve had a fantastic few years at The Stratford Park, with all areas of our business seeing growth, and a programme of investment to improve experiences for our guests – including a new outdoor area which will be opening soon.

“We look forward to working with Snehal to support our plans.”
