takeoverWhether the profit margins have expanded or contracted, soared or slumped or just remained ticking over matters not, what really matters for the courageous staff at the Clew Bay Hotel in Westport, is that they showed great fortitude, initiative and expressed an interesting entrepreneurial streak in their managerial coup d'état, banded together as they were for the last two weeks of March 2013, and taking on the combined role of hoteliers, from owners Darren Madden and his wife Maria. Their approach was egalitarian, with great ideas made actual from all departments, and a complete dissolution of middle and upper management. The two-week sabbatical by the boss-man and his wife was revealing indeed, particularly as its results were a pleasing testimony to the camaraderie, team ethos and creativity of their hotel staff.
