Theodore House appoints business manager

Theodore House has appointed Michael Jackson as business manager as it begins to build back momentum after being forced to close during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The venue is set within the Stonyhurst Estate in the Ribble Valley and offers conference, event and business meeting facilities with 24 en suite bedrooms. 

The building was renovated as a study, retreat and conference venue by The Christian Heritage Centre at Stonyhurst, a Catholic educational charity. The project won the 2019 regional Building Excellence award from LABC, and opened that same year.

Michael Jackson brings a wealth of business experience both nationally and internationally, with an emphasis on communications and marketing, as well as owning his own business.

Michael said: "I was looking for an opportunity that offered me a completely new challenge. Theodore House is an incredible facility, that offers a unique perspective on B&B and commercial venue hire. The location is stunning and there is a genuine sense of peace and calm for all those who decide to be guests with us.

"Many people will be surprised to realise that we are actually here and open for business. I see this as a wonderful opportunity to contribute to the growth of Theodore House as well as supporting the very important work of The Christian Heritage Centre charity."

Stefan Kaminski, director of The Christian Heritage Centre charity, which is the lease-holder of Theodore House, said: "We are delighted to have Michael as part of the team. His enthusiasm, experience and creative approach to business are exactly what we need to help restart operations at Theodore House."
