Boutique Hotelier hosted the first-ever Personal Service Star Awards on Tuesday evening, and Corby of Windsor presented the Shining Star Award to Sam Jones of Oddfellows in Chester.
Held at Hilton Olympia, hundreds of members of the industry gathered together to see the winners crowned in nine category awards, and supplier of quality products to the hospitality sector, Corby of Windsor, was the proud sponsor of the award that recognised a member of staff who showed particular promise.
Sam Jones beat off stiff competition to scoop the prize and was delighted with the win. He accepted his award on stage from Colin Quigley, commercial manager of Corby of Windsor.
Colin said: “We were delighted to be able to sponsor the Shining Star Award and the recipient Sam Jones was a deserving winner. The evening was thoroughly enjoyable and allowed industry professionals to network in a relaxed environment. We chose to sponsor the Shining Star Award to recognise the hard work and commitment required from junior managers within the independent hotel industry and to demonstrate that their hard work does not go unnoticed. I hope that the recognition shown to the recipients of the awards will inspire each of them to continue to develop their careers within the independent hotel sector and become industry leaders in the future.”
