On 7th January 2019 Paul Walsh joined the team at the Manchester Marriott Victoria & Albert hotel as General Manager, moving from Hotel Football, where he was General Manager for the past 3 years.

Paul has been in the hospitality industry for nearly 20 years, covering a variety of roles and locations in the UK and has worked within large Brands including City Inn, Hilton and now Marriott.

 “I am excited to join such an iconic hotel in Manchester City Centre, especially following the recent £0.5 million ground floor refurbishment.  It’s a great time to be involved at the V&A with all the local development on our doorstep, including the St John’s project, with the Factory set to bring in additional visitors to the city.  I am looking forward to continuing to build on the great reputation the hotel has in this vibrant and ever-changing city”.
