UK: Harry Shepherd will serve as general manager at Palé Hall hotel

Palé Hall hotel has announced the appointment of Harry Shepherd as general manager.

Shepherd was promoted to general manager following the departure of general manager Pim Wolfs.

Shepherd joined the five-AA-star hotel in Bala, Gwynedd, which is owned by Alan and Angela Harper, five months ago. He previously served as hotel manager. Wolfs departs to join the 38-bedroom, four-red-AA-star Dormy House hotel in Broadway, Worcestershire as general manager.

Angela Harper said: "We are certain that we have found the right person having already built a very close working relationship with Harry and are delighted that he is leading the Palé family. We will be very sorry to see Pim go, he has behaved with great honour during this process, ensuring great succession planning and he leaves with our love and respect. He is an important part of the Palé story and always will be. I am delighted that he has an opportunity at another prestigious property. Of course, Alan and I wish Pim well in his new role."

Wolfs said: "I've thoroughly enjoyed my time at Palé Hall and it's been a fantastic experience to launch the hotel and share this journey with Alan and Angela. Due to family reasons I've made the decision to move to the Cotswolds. I made them a promise that I would not leave until we had found the right person to step into the general manager role, and I have no doubt that Harry is indeed that person and I proudly hand over the reins to him."

Shepherd commented: "The high standards of the hotel, our wonderful location in the welsh countryside and its continued strive for excellence makes it an exciting place to work, and I'm pleased to be taking on the leadership."
