Senior appointment strengthens Snowdon Mountain Railway team
The Snowdon Mountain Railway has announced that they have appointed a new Revenue Manager.
Chris Jones, who was most recently Operations Manager for Premier Inn, joins the 28 member strong team and will be based in Llanberis.
Chris will become deputy to Commercial Manager Vince Hughes.
Chris was born and raised in Pwllheli, which can be found around 20 miles from the railway.
His appointment follows a big year for the railway, which saw an increase in visitor numbers alongside visits from both Dame Shirley Bassey and an engine from its sister railway in Switzerland.
What did the officials say?
Vince Hughes, Commercial Manager at Snowdon Mountain Railway, said:
“We’re pleased to add an experienced manager like Chris to the team at Snowdon Mountain Railway.
“He brings 17 years in the hospitality and leisure industry to his new role, along with real drive and a true affinity for North Wales and Snowdonia.”
Chris Jones said:
“I’m looking forward to the challenge at Snowdon Mountain Railway.
“I started working as soon as I finished my GCSEs and strongly believe you can get where you want to through hard work and making the most of your opportunities.
“Being part of such an iconic Welsh visitor attraction, it’s important we nurture the pool of local talent which then benefits the region as a whole.”
