Aberdeen’s country house in the city, Norwood Hall Hotel, has appointed Andrei Secuianu general manager. He will have responsibility for day-to-day hotel operations, as well as bolstering Norwood’s reputation as a high-end wedding, leisure and business destination.
Andrei brings experience of both large multinational hotel groups and boutique destinations having held senior operations and management roles with the likes of Marriot and the luxury Ardfin Estate, located on the Isle of Jura.
Most recently, he was general manager of Norwood’s sister hotel, Grange Manor, following similar spells at Macdonald Portal Golf & Spa Resort in Cheshire and Macdonald Forest Hills Hotel & Spa in Stirlingshire, where he started his journey with the company in 2019.
Andrei, originally from Romania, relocated to Scotland in 2016 following a role with global accountancy firm KPMG.
He said, “I’m extremely pleased to have taken on this important role at such an exciting time for Norwood Hall Hotel and look forward to the chance to strengthen relationships with our customer base, develop the brand and identify new opportunities for growth across the city and further afield.
“The hotel is a special place with the character of the property adding to the level of customer care and the high standards we continually set and aim to deliver for every guest.”
