Apex Appoints General Manager For New Bath Hotel

Apex Hotels has announced the appointment of Tim O’Sullivan as the general manager of its new 177- bedroom City of Bath Hotel.

 Irish-born Tim brings with him more than 20 years’ experience in the hotel industry and will lead the Summer-2017 opening of the four-star premises on the corner of James Street West.

 The move marks an exciting new opportunity for Tim, who has latterly held Regional Operations Manager roles across the Premier Inn chain in the Midlands and Home Counties. He most recently led a team of 21 general managers and throughout his career has been passionate about building great teams that deliver the best possible hotel experience.

He said: “I am not only looking  forward to working for such a progressive hotel group, but also relishing the opportunity to lead a team that gives Bath its only city centre conference space. Apex is extremely proud to be delivering an excellent hotel, worthy of a World Heritage City, while also spearheading a unique city centre conference and events venue.”

Tim was clear that his team would be critical to the hotel’s success and he would rely on them to deliver outstanding service to all guests. He added that Apex’s inclusive and inspiring approach to people management supported a culture that put the Apex team and their guests at the heart of everything. He said the hotel group’s focus on apprenticeship programmes for local young people was also something he was delighted to be championing.

 He added: “The new hotel will be the largest, purpose-build conference facility in the city – we know this will put Bath firmly on the map when it comes to business travel. Much of what is great about Bath is what is local. With that in mind, we are looking forward to recruiting for key roles from within the city, and in turn, introducing Bath to the Apex Hotels brand.”

Yousif Al-Wagga, Managing Director of Apex Hotels, said: “Tim has an excellent reputation and we see his appointment as a key development for the hotel. Apex is proud to nurture existing talent within its group, but also ambitious to strengthen its team with experienced professionals from other parts of the industry. ”

Tim will take up his role in January
