He said: “I am delighted to be taking on the role. It is such an exciting time for the consortium with much to be positive about, and I am confident of and very much looking forward to a successful 2023. 

“Early next year we have some exciting news that will be sure to elevate the brand, as well as increase the profile of our collection to consumers and fellow hoteliers. Whilst there are many positive projects and objectives on our agenda, I also recognise we have tough times ahead for our industry and I pledge to ensure we are constantly working closely with all stakeholders to support our members as best we can through these uncertain times. 

“My predecessor Sue successfully oversaw the transition and introduction of a new CEO, as well as navigated us through the restart following Covid, and on behalf of the board and our members, I thank her for her excellent stewardship over the past two years,” added Chambers.

Kalindi Juneja, CEO at Pride of Britain, said: “Mark Chambers has a remarkable drive for business with well thought out strategy and long-term vision. He is currently our longest-serving board member and brings profound context to every debate.
