The Commissioners Quay Inn has appointed Daniel Evans as its new general manager.
He has stepped up to take the helm of the £4.5million waterfront pub with rooms at Blyth – where he has been assistant manager since it opened last summer.
Mr Evans, who hails from Blyth, brings a wealth of customer service, event management and hospitality experience to the establishment, which is part of multi-award winning hospitality operators The Inn Collection Group’s estate.
The father-of-three said: “I am very proud to be stepping into the lead at The Commissioners Quay Inn.
“One of our most powerful assets is our people. Continued investment in staff training, confidence and progression is key for me and I am looking forward to working with our 60-strong team to bring about further training, upskilling and development.
“My team are an integral part of how we deliver on customer expectation, so everyone who walks through our doors – whether they are eating, drinking or staying with us – enjoys a totally individualised experience and returns and recommends us.”
The 40-bedroom Commissioners Quay Inn, located on redeveloped land along Blyth’s Quay Road, serves home-made food and drinks from breakfast through to 9pm.
The Inn Collection Group operations director, Sean Donkin, said: “Daniel impressed with his proven track record for implementing strategic business initiatives and with his in-built enthusiasm for the role.”
