Jonathan Rounce served as a non-executive director of Brocket Hall from early 1994 to late 1996, having been appointed by Midland Bank (subsequently HSBC) to bring both hotel and golf development and operating experience and financial expertise to the board. He was closely involved with the business’s development during that period and its preparation for the eventual sale to CCA in 1996.
The 46-room Brocket Hall, set within 500 acres of mature parkland, offered an unparalleled venue for conferences, weddings, receptions, corporate retreats and product launches and was a popular film location.
Jonathan was very much involved, under the eventual Chairmanship of Lord McLaurin, in the run-up to the sale of Brocket Hall in the preparations for that process and the marketing of the property and in vetting and appraising the many bids that were received and in evaluating the wide-ranging development proposals contained in the various bid documents.
Following the sale to CCA the day to day operation of Brocket Hall was passed over to Palmerston Hotels & Resorts, an operating subsidiary that continues to run the estate under the terms of the 60-year lease that CCA bought.
