Edgewater in Lake Wanaka appoints new General Manager

Edgewater in Lake Wanaka has appointed a new General Manager.

Mike Barton will become the new General Manager directly after incumbent GM Leigh Stock’s departure on 23 May 2014, thus ensuring continuity of management at the hotel, especially as it moves into the busy winter ski season.

Mike, along with Leigh, has been part of the Executive Management team for the past 10 years. He held the role of Financial Controller for the property during that time.

In making the announcement the Chairman of the Board, Mr Michael Soutar indicated that he and the Board were keen to ensure the present momentum and culture at Edgewater is maintained seamlessly.

As part of the Executive Management team Mike has been heavily involved with current developments, including:
- the co-ordination and programming of the room refurbishment plans

- the re-flooring and enhancement of the Pavilion weddings and events area

- development of finance, business and marketing plans

“It is an exciting time to come into the role and lead the implementation of these projects to drive further growth for the hotel. We have a great team of staff who are passionate about Edgewater, and the tourism industry environment is much more positive than it has been in recent years,” comments Mike Barton.

Mike began his career in hotels in Christchurch at the Chateau Commodore (now Chateau on the Park) and then moved into senior finance roles with Pyne Gould Corporation in Christchurch before moving to Wanaka in 2003.

Mike will be joining Leigh Stock and our Business Development Manager Trish May at TRENZ on Wednesday 21 May.
