We caught up with James Richardson - new Hotel Operations Manager at the Holiday Inn Express Peterborough. Here's what he is looking forward to in the future with Atlas Hotels...


How did it feel being recruited during COVID-19?

Having worked within IHG for 13 years, this, in theory, was a simple transition then COVID-19 came and I had to quickly adapt with a new team to ensure the safety of our guests, staff and visitors. Thankfully Atlas Hotels were quick to distribute the right tools to aid us.

What's been your favourite moment so far?

So far meeting my team, they are all so friendly and helpful, the guests love them and as a Manager, I couldn't ask for a better platform to work and develop myself, the team and hotel.

Looking to the future, what are you most looking forward to working in the Atlas family?

I'm looking forward to making our Peterborough hotel the best it can be and progressing my team on the leader boards for revenue, loyalty and staff engagement. I really am thrilled to be working within atlas Hotels.
