James Leeds

General Manager
Parkmore Hotel & The Purple Peacock, Eaglescliffe

James started his journey in hospitality straight from school with the view of a gap year working. That gap year is now nearly 10 years long. James started life at The Parkmore as a Leisure Assistant and progressed through the ranks to General Manager

James had worked within High Street Hospitality since November 2018 when they purchased The Parkmore.

James has been brought up in and around hospitality throughout his life as both parents worked in the industry. Very competitive by nature and loves to succeed. When James is not at work you’ll find him on the rugby pitch or training in the gym.
