Hotel du Vin manager has new Henley role
Published 14/05/13



THE new manager of Hotel du Vin in Henley says he is excited about his first summer in the town.

Phil Cox, 41, has spent 14 years running hotels all over the country but is delighted to be working in the home of the royal regatta and Henley Festival.

He said: ďIíve been everywhere from Maidstone to Leeds but Henley is the best place Iíve ever worked. Itís a unique town with some fantastic independent shops and a real sense of community. I donít think Iíve ever been somewhere with such a close-knit feel.

ďThat atmosphere comes through loud and clear whether Iím speaking to the Mayor or meeting local hairdressers.Ē

Mr Cox, from Basingstoke, said he would continue the work of previous manager Rohan Slabbert in forging links with the community. The hotel will still support the Chiltern Centre for disabled children and host events such as the launches of the Sue Ryder women of achievement awards, Regatta Radio and the Henley Literary Festival.

Mr Cox said: ďI think youíve got to embrace that if youíre going to do well as a business. Itís an amazingly exciting time.Ē

He will be helped by the hotelís sales and events manager Fiona Pyle, who was promoted from events manager in March and has worked for parent company Malmaison for five years.

The 32-year-old from Twyford said: ďI really enjoy meeting people ó sales comes naturally to me and I couldnít see myself in any other job.

ďWe have so many different types of people coming through the doors, which makes every day different and exciting.Ē
