We would like to welcome newly appointed Director of Design and Consultancy, Rachel Carr to the Beacon team. 

Rachel’s role will focus on building up a new portfolio of design and refurbishment services for Beacon.  Working closely with her colleagues in Best Western on brand-specific projects, Rachel will also lead the development of dynamic design/refurbishment packages, as well as the project management of customer refurbishments and builds.

Prior to joining Beacon, Rachel enjoyed a 14-year career with Hilton Worldwide, where she was latterly Director of Furniture, Fixtures & Equipment & Hotel Operating Equipment (UKI/Europe), responsible for the sourcing and specification of FF&E and HOE across multiple Hilton brands in over 150 hotels and over 30 countries. Her work covered both capital expenditure and new developments.

In her additional responsibility as purchasing agent on behalf of individual hotel owners, she project managed several prestigious new builds and refurbishments, including the Hilton Barcelona Diagonal Mar, and Hilton Valencia, with combined interior budgets in excess of £23M.

Steven Henderson, Managing Director, commented, “We are delighted to welcome Rachel to Beacon.  As the country moves out of recession and more hotels and hospitality businesses are looking to reinvest in their facilities, Rachel’s track record and wealth of knowledge in these specialist areas of supply management, project management, design and brand concept roll outs, will be of great benefit to our customers.”
