New manager at St George’s Club
Peter Kyle has been appointed manager of The St George’s Club, in the Town of St George.
He has extensive experience in the hotel industry. He was executive housekeeper and Fairmont Gold Manager at the Fairmont Southampton, and also worked for the company in Boston. And he helped train Fairmont staff in Kenya.
After his spell overseas, he returned to Bermuda as assistant general manager at Coral Beach Club, assisting the new ownership install systems. He then took on a similar role at Grotto Bay Resort and Spa.
“Having fulfilled his agreed commitment at that resort when we asked him to assist us to move The St George’s Club through the metamorphosis to a hotel, he quickly agreed,” Sally-Ann Kyle, president and CEO of The St George Club, said of her son.
“We are delighted that he did so because this is a family business, and he has worked here before many times. So, while he knows the business, Peter comes with a passion to make things work better and more efficiently.
“His knowledge of rooms and food and beverage is extensive and we feel having someone like Peter as part of the management team is key to moving ahead and creating a sustainable operation which includes both restaurants being successful, while maintaining the locally owned, family style hotel we are transitioning too.
“While change is sometimes resisted by individuals, we feel now is the time to make adjustments as we change to a hotel with the understanding that everything we do, also preserves the time-sharing right-to-use access for our ‘members’ agreements some of which will not expire for another 20 years.”
Mr Kyle achieved a BA (Hons) in Hospitality Management & Tourism from the University of Strathclyde, in Scotland, before entering the management internship programme at the Fairmont Southampton.
