I am delighted to announce that Richard Lewis, the highly experienced hotel and hospitality pioneer, has been appointed as CEO of Northern Powerhouse Developments Hotels.
Lewis, who was formerly CEO of Best Western Hotels GB and CEO of Landmark Hotels in Dubai, brings nearly 40 years industry experience to the role and will be helping to expand the NPD portfolio and increase profitability across all our hotels.
The arrival of Richard as our new CEO is hugely exciting and reflects just how far we have come in the past 12 months. His track record and experience within the hotel and hospitality industry speaks for itself and there is nobody better equipped to deliver and oversee the successful operation of a portfolio of hotels than him.
The appointment of Richard Lewis comes just months after the arrival of Peter Moore OBE as the new Chairman of Leisure. We now have the best possible team in place to deliver a hotel and resort experience of the highest quality. Their combined experience and knowledge will make us a major force within the industry over the next five years. The group couldn’t be in better hands.
