A Liverpool casino has made two key appointments to further develop its appeal as an all-round leisure and social venue.
Gaming manager Nykki Giannico and hospitality manager Alistair Barclay have joined Genting Club Queen Square, bringing different experiences to their new roles.
Nykki has travelled the world working on cruise ships during a 24 year career in the gaming industry. She is back on home ground as she is originally from The Wirral.
Nykki said: “Joining Genting is a great opportunity and I’ve been made very welcome at Queen Square by colleagues and customers. I’ve always loved the variety and excitement of working in casinos and now there’s much more of a social aspect where people come out to enjoy a meal and a drink in attractive surroundings as well as the gaming experience.”
Developing the hospitality side appealed to 24-year-old Alistair. He studied hospitality management at university in Manchester and has worked in hotel management, including at a boutique hotel in Devon, and as an assistant restaurant manager.
He said: “This is a great venue and I’m keen to raise wider awareness of how much it has to offer through its restaurant and the stylish 1880 Bar. There is a real focus on providing outstanding customer service and great food and drink, such as freshly made cocktails. I’m delighted to be part of the team here.”
General manager Carole Poulson said: “We are always keen to recruit talented people with a passion for what they do and in Nykki and Alistair we have hit the jackpot.”
