SKIBBEREEN native Elaine Dempsey has been promoted to the role of general manager at The Maritime Hotel in Bantry.
A graduate of UL, Elaine joined the reception team at The Maritime in 2007. She then progressed first to front office supervisor, before moving to the role of sales and marketing manager in 2012. Elaine was promoted to operations manager in 2018 before being promoted to general manager of the 110-bedroomed hotel earlier this year.
‘I am honoured to take on this new role. I love working in the hospitality industry, I have worked in this industry since I was 16-years-old, at first during my school holidays and then during college. The hospitality industry gave me the opportunity to live and work in my native West Cork. I am very proud of where I’m from.’
