Dublin and London | 16 November 2021: Dalata Hotel Group plc ("Dalata" or the "Group" or the "Company"), the largest hotel operator in Ireland with a growing presence in the United Kingdom, announces the appointment of a non-executive director.

 

The board is pleased to announce that Ms Gervaise Slowey will join the board as an independent non-executive director on 1 December 2021.

The appointment of Gervaise represents another important step in the renewal of the independent non-executive membership of our board which, as previously announced, is taking place on a managed basis over a number of years.

 

I am also very pleased to observe that, following Board appointments announced in the recent past, we will, with effect from 1 January 2022, have achieved gender equality on our board."
