Managing Director/Owner of The Metropole Hotel and Spa in Llandrindod Wells
A family run business for 120 years; I have been Managing Director since 1996 when I took over from my father. A 4 AA star hotel with 109 bedrooms, The Metropole is a fine example of an independent provincial hotel, investing in facilities and staff to create a business that not only contributes to the community but is at the heart of it. With 95 people employed directly in the business, The Metropole is a major mid-Wales employer. As well as being a committee member of the BHA, I have sat on the Visit Wales tourism advisory panel and am currently chairman of the Llandrindod Wells Business group which was borne out of chairing the mid-Wales Local Growth Zone Task and finish group set up by Welsh Government.
