Cabot Cape Breton, located on over a mile of sandy beach along the coast of Cape Breton Island, Nova Scotia, has announced the appointment of Kendall Clancy as the resort’s new General Manager. As General Manager of Cabot Cape Breton, Clancy will be responsible for overseeing management and operations of the premier Canadian golf destination.
Clancy brings more than 12 years’ experience within the luxury hospitality industry from various operations roles with Fairmont Hotels & Resorts and Accor Hotels. Most recently, she served as the Director of Rooms at Fairmont Pacific Rim in Vancouver. After completing her diploma in Tourism and Hospitality Management at Nova Scotia Community College, Clancy was selected to join Fairmont’s Leadership Development program in 2012 accelerating young talent. Through the program, Clancy gained experience across multiple properties. She has also continued her education and is currently completing her degree in tourism at Thompson Rivers University.
“We recognized Kendall’s passion for curating incredible guest experiences and developing strong cultures, along with her stellar operational track record, making her the ideal fit for Cabot Cape Breton,” said Ben Cowan-Dewar, CEO and co-founder of The Cabot Collection. “Her warm hospitality is undeniable and I know she will be a wonderful leader for our team at Cabot Cape Breton.”
As a champion of equity, inclusion and diversity, Clancy has served as a co-chair of Accor North America’s RiiSE Committee (Accor’s international network to promote diversity) and as Vice President of WORTH Association (Women of Recreation, Tourism & Hospitality).
“I am thrilled to join The Cabot Collection, whom I’ve long admired for their incredible portfolio and stellar reputation,” said Clancy. “I’m looking forward to being a part of the Inverness community and further shaping the stunning destination through Cabot Cape Breton.”
Cabot Cape Breton first emerged on the global stage over a decade ago with the opening of Cabot Links, which was immediately heralded as one of the world’s greatest golf courses. The Cabot Collection CEO and Co-founder Ben Cowan-Dewar discovered the former mining town 17 years ago, and with the help of a dedicated team, he has since turned the former remote stretch of land into one of the top golf destinations in the world. Cabot Cape Breton now includes a 72-room lodge, various real estate offerings, three restaurants and 46 thrilling holes of golf. Following the tremendous success revitalizing the rural region and catapulting the destination of Cape Breton onto the map, The Cabot Collection is now a world-renowned international brand with five properties in some of the world’s most jaw-dropping settings.
