We're pleased to announce the appointment of Tennant Hilditch as our new Director of Sales as part of our continued investment in the growth of the company.
Having worked in the hospitality industry for more than 25 years, both in the UK and internationally, including 12 years with Rentokil across a variety of divisions and 13 years with the UK’s largest independent linen rental company, Fishers, Tennant brings an array of skills and experience to the role.
Tennant’s new role as Director of Sales will see him take responsibility for internal and external account management, as well as the retention and growth of our extensive portfolio. Tennant’s appointment follows the appointment Andrew Denton as Head of Communications, and Rob Payne as Chief Commercial Officer.
Speaking of his new role, Tennant commented:
“Throughout my career I’ve worked across a huge variety of sectors, everything from pest control to landscaping to linen rental. Working with Beacon gives me the opportunity to take my skills and experience from 25 years in this industry and apply it to Beacon’s varied portfolio. I’m eager to get started and play a part in the continuing growth of the company and work with the team here to devise a solid strategy moving forward into 2015 to better support our customer base.”
Chief Commercial Officer, Rob Payne, added:
“Tennant is a great addition to the sales team across Interchange & Consort Hotels, the parent company of Beacon and Best Western GB, and he is already adding significant value to the strong team. His superior knowledge of the industry is absolutely invaluable to us and we are really pleased to have someone on board with such a reputable commercial background.”
