On joining the Radisson Blu Hotel Tallinn, Brian said: ''I am delighted to be here in Estonia and to be managing such a prestigious property. Tallinn is a city that I have heard a great deal about before my arrival and all of it was very positive. Now that I have arrived and began to integrate into the community over here, I know that I am very fortunate to be based now in such a fantastic and vibrant city. The team at the hotel have done a wonderful job and have made me feel very welcome and I look forward to working with them and to welcoming may visitors to Estonia and to the Radisson Blu Hotel, Tallinn in the near future ''.
Mr. Rochefort had been leading the hotel since February 2009, amidst what has been challenging times for the tourism and hotel sectors with the economy's downturn.
