Press Room

Robin Hutson, Chairman of LimeWood Group Ltd, announces the appointment of Kenneth Speirs as General Manager of the much acclaimed LimeWood hotel in Hampshire, following the departure of the previous incumbent Justin Pinchbeck who leaves in July to move to The Berkeley, Knightsbridge.

Kenneth is currently the General Manager of COMO Hotels and Resorts’ celebrated boutique London hotel - The Halkin, Belgravia - where he has been for the past eight years.


Robin said “Justin has done a great job putting LimeWood on the map and we are proud that The Berkeley looked to LimeWood for their new appointment. We are now delighted to have Kenneth on board, he is a hotelier through and through having the perfect mix of experience to take LimeWood on to the next stage. He has been with COMO Hotels a long time; their exacting standards with a contemporary twist match perfectly the style we strive for at LimeWood. We have a number of exciting developments over the next year including the launch of the new restaurant collaboration between Angela Hartnett and Luke Holder – so there will be plenty for Kenneth to get his teeth into.”

Kenneth said “this is a wonderful opportunity for me, LimeWood is a fantastic property and this role has come along at just the right moment in my career. I am really looking forward to working with Robin and the team with all the exciting developments planned for the years ahead”.

Kenneth takes up his post in September.
