Telford steps down from Rosewood role
Rosewood Bermuda’s managing director, Paul Telford, has stepped down.
The hotel announced Mr Telford’s leaving today, but said he would continue to work with the property’s ownership group, providing hospitality consultation on their investments in Bermuda.
Mr Telford joined the resort as part of the opening team in 2008 and worked in several roles at the property before taking the helm in 2015.
A hotel spokesman said they were grateful for the outstanding leadership Mr Telford provided to Rosewood Bermuda over the last ten years.
In the last year, Mr Telford led the Rosewood Bermuda team through a full renovation and successfully relaunched the property to great acclaim. He was also named as chairman of the Bermuda Tourism Authority, as an ambassador for tourism on the island.
“He has played an important role in his work with Rosewood and Bermuda with his stewardship and passion as a hospitality professional,” the spokesman said. “We have the utmost respect for Paul, and thank him for his efforts and steadfast commitment to the resort, and wish him much success in the next phase of his career.”
Rosewood is now searching worldwide for Mr Telford’s replacement. Until a formal managing director has been appointed, Remus Palimaru, hotel manager of the Rosewood London, has been brought in on a short-term assignment to oversee the daily operations of the hotel and to organise the property and team for the 2019 high season.
