Michael has been General Manager at the Apex City of Bath since August 2018 and guided the hotel and conference centre through a period of sustained growth. Originally from Northern Ireland, Michael has worked in hospitality throughout the UK & Ireland, working with brands such as The Doyle Collection; Hotel du Vin and IHG. Michael’s passion for hospitality started at a young age as a banqueting waiter in his home-town through to reaching the ranks of General Manager in London in 2009. Throughout his time in hospitality, a huge part of Michael’s day to day role has been managing and leading teams, from recruitment to training and development. Having an interest in who may join his wider team, Michael does like to get involved in meeting prospective candidates and being part of engagement events outside the hotel by attending job fairs; building relationships with local charitable partners and local colleges in the city of Bath.

It is great to be part of the Bath Business Conference and showcase how the City is a great place to work and share what opportunities that can be afforded for all in the City and further afield. The opportunity to network with the various sectors and build relationships is key to ensure the City of Bath is a place to invest for future prosperity for all!
