CEO: Andrew Holt


PROFESSIONAL BACKGROUND After leaving university in Cardiff with a BEd degree, I enjoyed 10 years working in the public sector before starting up a private leisure management company in 1989. I joined Parkwood in 1995 to start Parkwood Leisure, and in January 2012 I took up the post of group CEO. BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER BEEN GIVEN Pay attention to the detail and listen. PEOPLE MIGHT BE SURPRISED TO KNOW THAT... I still enjoy waterskiing and snow skiing with my family.
