The top 50 most inspirational figures working in the hotel industry have now been revealed in the release of the inaugural Boutique Hotelier Power List.
Published as a separate publication in addition to the April issue of your favourite industry magazine – which is due to hit desks any day now – the Power List pays homage to those doing excellent work in the hospitality sector, celebrating a range of top-tier roles from owners, general managers and managing directors.
We can now reveal who has made the cut in the first-ever edition of the Boutique Hotelier Power List, with ten names listed under each of the five categories.
The Boutique Hotelier Power List aims to shed a light on those responsible for some of the excellent work that goes on in the industry. Some of them will be familiar faces, while others are just starting to make their mark on the sector, but each one of the following 50 names have had a direct hand in spurring the development of both the industry and their hotels over the past 12 months and fully deserve to be a part of the inaugural Power List.
It isn’t just about opening new hotels, of course. Many independent operators are refurbishing their existing estate, replenishing their hotel with new designs, more efficient technology and exploring new service concepts that require them to think outside the box.
Zoe Monk, editor of Boutique Hotelier said: “None of our industry’s growth could be achieved without the real champions leading each process to success and in turn encouraging other people along the way. While it’s the combined input of numerous people and teams that contribute to the final outcome and day-to-day excellence of a property, it’s often the fierce leaders who are inspiring their businesses to reach new heights. We are celebrating this figures who are helping to make the boutique, independent and lifestyle hotel sector, one of the world’s best.”
