Mark Chambers, managing director of the Eden Hotel Collection; Nicholas Dickinson, managing director of Congham Hall; Colm Kelly, general manager of K&K Hotel George in London; and Claire Randall, managing director of Lucknam Park Hotel & Spa, have all been given Master Innholder status.
Andrew Stembridge, managing director of Chewton Glen and Cliveden House, and the chairman of the Master Innholders, said: “I am very proud to be able to welcome these new Master Innholders who join an association which has the sole objective of promoting the highest professional standards in hotel management.
“We were particularly pleased with the high quality of submissions received this year, as well as the breadth of the industry which they represented. This bodes well for the future success and influence of the Master Innholders.”
Their selection follows a rigorous application process which includes the submission of 1500-word paper, appearance before an interview panel and demonstration of their current contribution and support to the wider industry.
There are about 100 Master Innholders, all of whom are, or have been, prominent hoteliers, dedicated and committed to promoting best practice in the industry.
