We spoke to Holiday Inn Express Manchester - Salford Quays' new Hotel Operations Manager - Adam Barrow - about joining the Atlas family during a global pandemic. Here's what he had to say...


How did it feel being recruited during COVID-19?

The team have been absolutely amazing – from David my COM through to Sarah and Phillippa in HR. The level of communication with me, in keeping me updated regularly and holding my position during lockdown has been brill. It’s taken some adapting, and will continue to do so – to get used to the Atlas way of doing things; systems and operations are very different from what I have been used to. But I am enjoying it and really looking forward to getting stuck in to driving the team and providing a great experience for our guests. 

Looking to the future, what are you most excited about as part of the Atlas family?

The whole experience has been amazing, but a complete whirlwind. I am very much still getting grounded but excited to get my teeth into the finer details. In terms of the future, I am simply looking forward to developing my team, pushing and motivating them further and hopefully seeing some of them progress over time. The biggest satisfaction in my previous roles has been watching the confidence and progression of my teams grow.
