Acton Park Team Update

There are many pieces to the “opening a new club” jigsaw puzzle; the single most important piece for me is ensuring that we get the team right for you. I have thought long and hard about how we bring a sense of familiarity to our former Park Club members and bring a sense of David Lloyd Clubs to the wider membership. I am pleased to announce that we are 90% of the way there with the recruitment of our Senior Management Team. We have a mix of David Lloyd Clubs and Park Club management joining the team.

Lesley Gahan - Member Experience Manager
Firstly, I would like to welcome Lesley Gahan to the Acton Park Family as our Member Experience Manager, in charge of ensuring you have the best possible experience with us. Over the past 11 months Lesley has worked at our Raynes Park Club and prior to that Lesley worked at Virgin Active Chiswick Riverside Club. Lesley’s can-do attitude and ‘member’s first’ mindset will truly be an asset to our club.

Olivia Hajialexandrou - Member Services Supervisor
Next, I would like to welcome Olivia Hajialexandrou as our Member Services Supervisor in charge membership and reception. Olivia has been with our Harbour Club Chelsea for the last 3 years and is truly multitalented.

Szilvia Trefan - Club Administrator
Next, I would like welcome Szilvia Trefan as our Club Administrator. Szilvia has been with our Harbour Club Chelsea for just over 5 years now and also has gained a wealth of experience from the hospitality and retail sectors.

Bridie Lynch - Racquets Manager
Next, a familiar face for our former Park Club members. Bridie Lynch joins us as Racquets Manager and will be in charge of all things Racquets-related, including our junior tennis programme. Bridie certainly demonstrates a true passion for both tennis and members alike and has done a sterling job keeping the tennis programme alive for our members whilst we are reconstructing the Club.

Tina Strahinič - Health and Safety Manager
Next, another familiar face - I would like to welcome Tina Strahinič  as our Health and Safety Manager. Tina has previously worked at The Park Club as Senior Duty Manager and more recently has worked at Virgin Active Chiswick Riverside as Service Manager looking after service and lifeguards.

Rose Sanaders - Family Activity Manager
Next, I would like to welcome Rose Sanaders as our Family Activity Manager in charge of our DL Kids and Swimming departments. Rose has been with David Lloyd Clubs on and off for the last 7 years and has some fantastic ideas on how to bring to life our new DL Kids and Swimming department.

Ian Cooke - Fitness Manager
Finally, I would like to welcome Ian Cooke to the Acton Park Family as our Fitness Manager, in charge of your experience in the gym and studios. Ian previously had been with The Park Club since 2011 and his truly engaging personality will ensure you have the best possible fitness experience with us.

Please join me in congratulating and welcoming all of the team to our club, they are all very excited to ensure we deliver the best possible experience for you when we open.

Kind Regards
Shiv Patel
