The Power List is a celebration of individuals responsible for leading, spearheading and encouraging in their own hotels up and down the country are intrinsic to the success of the sector.

The Business Leaders category pays tribute to 10 figureheads piloting some of the most prominent boutiques in the UK hotel market.

The decisions they make, the investments they sanction and the projects they green-light all start off a chain of events that leads to the way thousands of guests enjoy their experience and the business performs and flourishes.

The special guide honours 50 of the market’s most deserved individuals and pays tribute to their achievements over the past 12 months.

So how did we select the 50 companies and individuals in the first place? Well, ultimately we left it to the industry to decide by inviting the market to recommend the most dedicated industry professionals.

Additionally, we have taken into account the news stories and developments we have featured in Boutique Hotelier magazine and over the last 12 months, paying attention to examples of growth and best practice.

As you’ll see from reading the profiles of the 50 individuals and companies selected, the level of innovation taking place in the industry is remarkable — and something that deserves to be celebrated.
