Guy Lissimore has been appointed managing director of Oxford Inns & Hotels, the company now running one-third of the former London & Edinburgh Swallow Group (LESG) estate, writes Paul Charity. Lissimore was previously in charge of the tenanted pubs arm at LESG. He took up the job at LESG after the departure of directors Peter Gray and Danny Rogers. Oxford Inns and Hotels is a company set up by the Khalaschti family at the end of August. Last Friday the Khalaschti family, through their Flodrive vehicle, paid around £1m to buy back the fixtures and fittings attached to their 240 freehold pubs and hotels from the administrator. Oxford Inns and Hotels runs the 240 sites from a base in Dartford. Among the sites within the Khalaschti portfolio are the Old Brewery Hotel, Reepham, Norfolk and the Ram Jam Inn in Lincolnshire.
