David Morgan-Hewitt has been appointed as the new chairman of the Master Innholders, taking over from Danny Pecorell.
Announced at last week’s Master Innholders AGM (10 September), Morgan-Hewitt will be supported by the Master Innholders’ executive committee in his efforts as chairman.
Morgan-Hewitt, managing director of The Goring, was one of the first recipients of the Innholders scholarship and has been recognised with various esteemed industry accolades over the years, including Manager of the Year 2010 at the Catey Awards and Outstanding Contribution Award 2017 at the Hotel Catey Awards.
Morgan-Hewitt said: ‘‘I’m honoured to take over this prestigious position from Danny, who has done a fantastic job in leading the organisation over the last two years.
“If the last few months has taught us anything it’s how resilient and open our industry is to supporting one another in challenging times.”
He added: ‘‘With the support of our executive committee, I aim to continue the brilliant work we do on the development of our future leaders, while providing the industry with resources and insight and championing our great profession.’’
