One of the privileges of my position at Pride of Britain Hotels is the ability to claim the acquaintance of our current chairman, David Morgan-Hewitt, who is probably better known as the Managing Director of The Goring, a stylish five star hotel near Buckingham Palace and among the last in London to remain in family ownership.
David has recently been named Top General Manager of the Year Worldwide by US-based publication, Luxury Travel Advisor. The award was announced at the 2015 Luxury Travel Advisor’s Awards of Excellence, held at the Four Seasons Resort in Orlando, Florida. It is presented to the winner of the highest number of votes from readers of Luxury Travel Advisor from a list of nominees drawn up by leading travel operators.
For all his many qualities, not to mention the success that he has helped to bring to The Goring, the one we most appreciate is his sense of humour. Even the tensest board meetings invariably include a giggle or two, which is not something every organisation can rely on. And he does know a thing or two about luxury.
A well deserved award for an outstanding hotelier.
