The Inn Collection Group has appointed a new property director, Louise Stewart, to assist in its multiple development and expansion plans this year.

Having worked for over 20 years in the commercial property industry, as well as being a qualified chartered surveyor, Stewart will join the group from consultants Silverstone Building Consultancy, where she was a Director.

Silverstone is appointed on multiple refurbishment projects for the Inn Collection Group, and will continue its project management role alongside Stewart in her new position.

The group currently runs 19 pubs across Northumberland, County Durham, North Yorkshire, Cumbria, and Lancashire, and has plans for several refurbishments, as well as the addition of three new sites, by the end of next month.

“We are delighted to welcome Louise to the team,” said managing director Sean Donkin. “As we continue to grow, it is vital we strengthen our team with highly skilled professionals such as Louise, and we are excited for what she will bring to the group. We would like to wish her a long and prosperous association with The Inn Collection Group.”

“It is exciting to join a company with such ambitious growth plans and I can’t wait to get started,” added Stewart. “Their current offering is something that customers love, and I can’t wait to help continue growing this across all their sites.”
