Wellbeing resort group appoints UK leadership team for scheme’s next phase

Plans for Therme Manchester

Following approval to build a £250m wellbeing resort in Manchester, Therme Group has announced the leadership team appointed to support the project and future plans for UK growth.

The global wellbeing organisation’s unique city-based resort concept has proven highly successful in Europe for more than 20 years, with the new team now set to develop an elevated model across the UK.

The roll out will create more than 3,000 jobs and represents a major investment into the health and wellbeing of the population.

Combining nature, sustainable technology and culture, Therme Group resorts offer a fun and relaxing experience that also focus on mental and physical health.

The UK team is committed to delivering on Therme Group’s vision of ‘wellbeing for all’ and includes Stelian Iacob, Adrian Ion, Anne-Marie Garner, Duncan Newbury, Richard Land and James Mark.

Taking the role of CEO in the UK is Stelian Iacob. Also senior VP of Therme Group globally, Stelian was instrumental in developing the Therme concept throughout Europe.

Under his leadership, the accessible and inclusive experience has become an essential part of daily life, benefiting community mental and physical health.

Dr Robert Hanea, chairman and CEO of Therme Group, said: “The exceptional UK leadership team will drive the rapid development of our UK projects.

“The team, each an expert in his or her field, are united in delivering Therme Group’s vision of ‘wellbeing for all’.

“Their work will see this realised in projects which bring profound benefits to the health and wellbeing of communities throughout the country.”

Therme Group is rolling out a global development programme, with 14 large-scale projects in the portfolio around the world.

More than 10 are in the final stages of development and four are operating in Europe using the Therme Group wellbeing concept, philosophy and technology.

Therme Manchester, scheduled to open in 2023, will be a major economic driver for the Greater Manchester area and is forecast to be the world’s largest all-season water-based attraction.

The group has recently revealed further UK plans for projects in London, Scotland and Wales.

All Therme Group resorts share the vision of ‘wellbeing for all’, employing sustainable technology to provide inclusive and affordable health and wellbeing opportunities to communities worldwide.
