UK hotelier power list celebrates Gloucestershire names

Five businessman and women from Gloucestershire have been named on a respected industry power list for the hospitality sector.

In a world where recognition and praise can be worth its weight in gold being named on the Boutique Hotelier Power List is not taken lightly.

The publication and website's annual celebration of the movers and shakers in the UK hotel sector has singled out six names to place on its list of 50 for 2019.

Names are said to celebrate the owner, operator and management side of the industry who have made their mark this year.

"From the chief executives and managing directors, to the general managers and senior heads of departments, the 2019 Power List provides a rundown of those who are inspiring their business to hit new heights.

"We left it to the industry to decide by inviting the market to submit nominations and seeking feedback from the supply chain.

"Additionally, we have taken into account the news stories and developments we have featured in Boutique Hotelier and on boutiquehotelier.com this year, paying close attention to the examples of best practice and growth.

"The level of innovation taking place in the industry is remarkable - and something that definitely deserves to be celebrated."

Among its industry titans are listed Michael and Pamela Horton, owners, Cotswold Inns and Hotels, said to employ 400 staff at eight properties.

Eighty per cent of the management team has been promoted from within and in the financial year to September 2017, sales figures across the group showed a strong 7.1 per cent growth.

Investment in the portfolio remains key, with more refurbishments, upgrades and new installations planned

Claire White, a director at Tewkesbury Park, is named in the Young Trailblazers category.

Phil Brown, head of operations at the Julian Dunkerton-owned Lucky Onion group features in the Unsung Heroes list.

And Caryn Hibbert, owner of Thyme, at Southrop Manor Estate, was named in the Market Marvel category.
