The awards took on a different format this year due to the current coronavirus crisis and were presented by Executive Vice President of the International Division, Nicholas Northam, via a virtual platform. The awards covered all hotels in the group that sit outside of North America.

Carl Butterworth, General Manager won the award for Focus Service General Manager of the year which recognises him as an outstanding leader amongst his team and peers, seeing off strong competition from 94 managers from across the globe.

Sales Manager, Nikki Capobianco, also scooped runner up in the International Sales Manager of the Year award, where she was recognised for her consistent performance.

Cllr David Meller, Cabinet Member for Economy and Regeneration at Stockport Council, said: “This is fantastic news. Since opening at Stockport Exchange in 2017, the hotel has been a huge success and their outstanding customer service, combined with a first class location has clearly gone down well with their customers.

“The recent completion of 2 Stockport Exchange also puts them at the centre of one of the North West’s premier business addresses and along with our ambitious plans for the town centre and the arrival of Metrolink in the near future, will ensure they are a popular choice for years to come.

“Congratulations to Carl and Nikki on this much deserved award. I know that the team can’t wait to start welcoming guests again when it is safe to do so and providing the great hospitality that they are known for.”

Carl and Nikki commented: “It goes without saying we are both delighted and this was very much welcomed during these particularly difficult times.

“The hotel and Stockport in general will continue to thrive, we work with a fantastic hotel team and we look forward to continuing to grow and welcoming guests through our doors for a long time.”
