Rockliffe Hall has appointed Teresa Kingston as commercial director.
Teresa has joined the North’s only 5 AA Red Star Golf and Spa resort to oversee the sales, marketing and events teams and deliver a new commercial plan for the 61-bedroom hotel in Hurworth, near Darlington.
Over the past 18 years Teresa, 39, has worked her way up the industry ladder having started her career working in events at Middlesbrough Football Club.

Rockliffe managing director Jason Adams said “This is a key appointment for Rockliffe Hall and I’m delighted to welcome Teresa to the Executive team.

“Being from the North-East, I have closely followed the hotel’s success over the last decade and am thrilled that I’m now going to be part of the fantastic team there.”
