Brio Retirement Living has welcomed general manager Trish Staite, 43 and from Tewkesbury to its team at Beechwood Park in Stow-on-the-Wold in The Cotswolds.

Joining the expanding team, Trish brings a wealth of knowledge from her previous management roles - her most recent as manager of a large retirement village in Warwick.

Trish shared: “I am very excited to be a part of the fantastic team at Beechwood Park. After completing a degree in management, I gained career experience in both property sales and the travel industry – working in Australia, Greece, India and Italy. After returning to the UK, I spent 10 years managing a private estate in Worcestershire which included co-ordinating events and private functions.

“More recently I held the position of manager a retirement village in Warwick, and it was here that I established my passion for the later living sector. Watching the retirement village grown into an integral part of the community was extremely rewarding and I cannot wait to expand on this experience at Beechwood Park.”

Beechwood Park boasts 106 stunning one, two and three-bedroom apartments and bungalows, set in the sociable Cotswolds community of picturesque Stow-on-the-Wold.
