Sarah joined BH group following the acquisition of The Swan in 2020 where she had spent 11 years as a Company Director growing the business and developing the much-loved family owned hotel. She continues to head up the team at the Swan and oversees the forthcoming development plans, with intentions to take on a larger role within BH group overseeing the development of acquisitions into exceptional hotels.
The hospitality industry found Sarah quite by accident whilst she was studying for a degree in Sport Science. After 4 years in event management encompassing stadium openings, major high-profile sporting events and delivering hospitality to some of the world’s most famous and influential people Sarah joined the team at The Swan as General Manager at the tender age of 26.
Here she had a very close working relationship with the owners and oversaw amongst other things a 375% growth in profit, picking up a much-coveted acorn award as one of the top hoteliers under the age of 30 along the way. Sarah is a strong and passionate leader who is dedicated to creating wonderful spaces, exceptional hospitality and committed teams.
Outside of work Sarah is a former competitive rower, she spends as much time as possible running and keeping fit but most of her free time and weekends are taken up in assisting her young son in the pursuit of his own dreams of becoming a motocross champion. You will find her with a spanner in her hand, travelling the length and breadth of the country, usually covered in mud and oil.
A far cry from luxury hotels!
