Dave Storm has been named general manager of Slagharen Theme Park and Resort. Speaking ahead of his official 2 September start date, he said: “I am looking forward to being part of the team at the attraction and holiday park, to jointly expand further and to bring the park to the next phase in a professional manner.”
The management of Parques Reunidos and the management of Slagharen see Storm as the ideal successor. Tropical Islands director Wouter Dekkers said: “Dave is energetic and has a wealth of experience in the hospitality sector, which is very useful in his new role as general director of the nicest attraction and holiday park in the Netherlands. The park is on the move and Storm’s expertise, hands-on mentality and result-oriented approach are very welcome. I am confident that he is the right man in the right place, and I look forward to our collaboration.”
In recent years Dave was general director at Hotel & Congrescentrum Mennorode; he also held general manager positions at Sandton hotels and Libéma attraction and holiday parks, and worked at Carlton hotels, Landal Greenparks and Center Parcs.
