Silmiya Hendricks, Commercial Director

Working history

Over 20 years in the luxury hotel sector in the UK, Middle East and Asia, I started from the grassroots as a guest relations officer, rising to my current position as Commercial Director. Hilton Hotels have played a vital part in my career history having worked both in the United Kingdom in several of their flagship properties and then moving to Qatar as part of their pre-opening management team have given me a wealth of experience.

Why Lucknam Park

This was simple; living in the country was always on the cards, so when I came across the opportunity at Lucknam Park there was no second thoughts. What is not to love about this place? I recall first seeing Lucknam Park from the driveway and I told myself, this would do just fine. I wanted to be a part of the team and wanted to say I work here. The rest as they say is history.

What inspired you to work in hospitality

I have always been a people’s person and it was never a doubt that I would thrive in the hospitality industry environment.

When not at Lucknam Park Hotel, how do you spend your time

Spending as much time playing with our little doggie Cooper is what spare time is all about. We love our road trips and exploring the breath-taking countryside.

Favourite drink

A Hendricks G&T of course.
