David Chrimes will join the eastside rooms as director of operations, ahead of the venue’s launch, spring 2020. David represents the first of a number of high-profile appointments arriving at the venue as the business looks to build a senior team of meetings and events specialists.
David joins the eastside rooms after gaining quality experience at Hilton, De Vere, Park Regis and The Belfry. Over his 20 plus years in the meetings, events and hospitality industry, David has held a number of positions, starting off as a conference events manager, and then moving through F&B Manager, at Hilton Hotels & Resorts in both Wembley and Manchester, before being promoted to director of operations.
David commented, “This such an exciting time for the city, there is so much going on here from a business, cultural, sporting and tourism perspective. The arrival of the eastside rooms could not be better timed to be a part of this momentum.”
Matt Huddart, regional general manager, the eastside rooms, added, “We’re delighted to have someone of David’s calibre on board ahead of the launch. He has so many great ideas on how we can make the eastside rooms a premier venue for event professionals. He’s already getting stuck in and will build a great team to support him and our clients.”
David concluded: “Everything we’re doing right now revolves around how we can ensure every event has the WOW factor and will make event organisers’ visits stress-free and enjoyable. We’re looking to be innovative, and we’re working on distinctive and personalised offerings from food to service, from technology to design. It’s a really exciting time to be part of the business.”
