In his new role he will oversee five hotel teams across three locations –Torquay, Newquay, and Weymouth.

“Working for Daish’s is a wonderful opportunity,” Ronnie said.

“I feel involved in every aspect of the business and I’m working with some fantastic people who share experiences and the knowledge they have gained over the years.

“Becoming an area manager is an opportunity I just had to grab with both hands. A challenging role but well worth it. The Daish’s family is a talented team and it’s a pleasure to come to work.”
