Pride of Britain Hotels, the 50-strong collection of independently-owned hotels, is delighted to announce the key appointment of its new Chief Executive, Kalindi Juneja.
Ms Juneja will replace current CEO Peter Hancock, who is retiring (a year later than planned due to the pandemic) after being instrumental in shaping the brand and growing the collection’s membership to its 50-member capacity since he took on the role in 2000. Ms Juneja will officially join Pride of Britain Hotels on 4th October, working alongside Peter Hancock to ensure a seamless handover until he officially departs his longstanding role at this year’s annual conference, on 15th November.
Ms Juneja joins from Relais & Châteaux, where she has worked since 2017 – initially to manage the brand in the UK & Ireland, before being promoted to a global role as International Director. With almost 20 years in the industry, Kalindi has extensive experience in the independent hotel sector with a specialist focus on marketing, sales & communications.
Pride of Britain Hotels’ current Chief Executive, Peter Hancock, said of the news: “I have no doubt that Kalindi will take Pride of Britain to new heights over the coming years. And, if I’m allowed a little boast, it is that our efforts over the last two decades have made the organisation fit to attract a candidate of such quality.”
Pride of Britain Hotels’ Chairman, Sue Williams, also Managing Director of Whatley Manor in Wiltshire said: “When Peter informed us that it was his time to retire, we went through the full gambit of emotions – mostly the feeling of how might we ever get close to replacing him. However, we are absolutely delighted to be able to announce that our new CEO, Kalindi Juneja, joins us in October, bringing a wealth of experience that will, we are confident, help Pride of Britain Hotels to keep ahead of the game in its field.”
Despite the global pandemic, Pride of Britain Hotels’ membership continues to go from strength to strength, with four new hotels accepted during the last 12 months, including Haycock Manor Hotel in Cambridgeshire, which opens its doors on 19th July.
