HALIFAX — John Wilson has been promoted to general manager of the Westin Nova Scotian in Halifax.
Wilson has been with New Castle Hotels & Resorts — which owns the property — for twenty years and holds the distinction of being the hotel’s first employee.
“John was here when we opened the Westin Nova Scotian as the brand’s first franchise hotel and there is no one better prepared for and more deserving of the opportunity to shape its future,” says Gerry Chase, president and COO of New Castle Hotels & Resorts. “John has both the detailed, financial skills and the big picture hospitality frame of reference needed to operate a high profile, historic hotel in the province’s capital city.”
Wilson previously served as regional controller responsible for the company’s six Canadian hotels, a position he will continue to hold following his new promotion.
