Hotel management consultancy, Michels & Taylor, has called on Britain’s leading purchasing company, Beacon, to handle its purchasing strategy across all categories. Beacon currently manages spend across five Michels & Taylor properties, with an overall spend under management of approximately £1.5 million – a figure that is set to increase along with the growth of the company’s portfolio.
Michels & Taylor is one of Europe’s leading hotel management, consultancy and asset management businesses, offering a range of services for hotel owners, investors and banks. It currently works with around 45 hotels in the UK, predominantly managing assets, as well as working with hotels in a comprehensive operational capacity. Working with Michels & Taylor allows hotel managers to focus on the day-to-day management of the hotel and Beacon’s expert team will be managing the hotels’ purchase ledgers in partnership with the Michels & Taylor team.
Beacon was approached by Michels & Taylor to manage the purchasing spend across three of its properties, which soon increased to five properties including the prestigious Ellenborough Park in Cheltenham.
Paul Connelly, Managing Director at Beacon, commented:
“This is a fantastic opportunity for Beacon and certainly one that we are excited about. The hotel market is always evolving and Michels & Taylor is consistently ahead of the curve. We are looking forward to growing our business with Michels & Taylor as it inevitably continues to take on further properties, which will be of great commercial benefit to both parties.”
Peter Hales, Managing Director, Managed Properties at Michels & Taylor added:
“We look forward to working with Beacon and growing the relationship together.”
