Moxy Aberdeen Airport has appointed Colin Gunn as its new Captain, the brand’s twist on the general manager position.
Gunn replaces Donovan Sumner who was instrumental in overseeing the opening of the 200-bedroomed hotel in December 2016 and has stepped up to working for Belvar, the hotel’s management company, in a head-office role.
Colin said; “It’s great to work for a brand that I really believe in and is so unique in its styling and positioning. The hotel has gained an excellent position in the market already and I look forward to continuing its success.”
Josefin Baff, Moxy Commercial Officer at Belvar says; “Donovan has done a great job of putting Moxy on the map in Aberdeen. With Colin’s experience, drive and energy he is perfect to take over the reins and continue offering Aberdeen visitors somewhere unique to stay and unlike anything else in the hotel arena.”
A Hospitality Management graduate of Robert Gordons University, 37-year-old Gunn has spent his career in the hospitality industry in Aberdeen. Before joining Moxy Aberdeen, Colin worked for 9 years with the Holiday Inn Aberdeen West, where he won numerous reputable awards. For the last 3 years, he has been named as the region’s Deputy GM of the Year at the Scottish Hotel Awards. Notably, in November, he claimed the Tourism and Hospitality Hero title at the Aberdeen City and Shire Tourism Awards, which shortlists him for a prestigious Scottish Thistle, due to be awarded in March.
