Jadwiga Surmiak returns to The Gleneagle Hotel in Killarney as deputy general manager having previously worked there for over ten years. Jadwiga began her career in hospitality in 2006 as a waitress in The Gleneagle Hotel’s Flesk Restaurant.

Her flair for customer service and dedication to her work secured her a place on the hotel group’s Trainee Management Programme. Jadwiga subsequently rose through the managerial ranks gaining experience in various roles including bar manager and front office manager.

Her career trajectory continued with Killarney’s Great Southern Hotel where she held the roles of conference and banqueting manager, followed by food and beverage manager before being promoted to operations manager.

Jadwiga’s return to The Gleneagle Hotel has been hugely welcomed by the entire team. Speaking about her appointment Gleneagle Group CEO Patrick O’Donoghue said: “Jadwiga has amassed a wealth of experience during her career to-date. She was an integral part of our team for over a decade and we are delighted to welcome her back as deputy general manager.

Deputy General Manager, Jadwiga Surmiak said: “Much has changed at The Gleneagle since I last worked here, the hotel had undergone massive refurbishment, it has been elevated to four-star status by Fáilte Ireland and it has opened Hotel67. I am delighted to re-join The Gleneagle at this exciting time and I look forward to working with the team here to deliver exception guest experiences in the months and years ahead.”
