Hospitality awards dished out

Employees in the hospitality industry have been awarded this week at a prize-giving ceremony in London.

The annual Hospitality Finance, Revenue Management and IT Awards of the Year 2012 were dished out by HOSPA, providing a motivational boost for workers in hospitality jobs.

In front of nearly 300 guests at the Park Plaza Westminster Bridge, the big winners included professionals at the Cavendish London, Apex Hotels and Marriott Hotels.

The Corporate and SME Employer of the Year prizes were handed to Whitbread Hotels & Restaurants and St. Ermin's Hotel, London, respectively, while the Special HOSPA Award was presented to Mark Lightbound, director of finance at Coombe Abbey Hotel, near Coventry, and Lumley Castle Hotel, near Durham.

Commenting on the award, HOSPA chief executive Carl Weldon said: "We are greatly indebted to Mark for his voluntary commitment to the work of the Association, spanning many years – including serving from 1994 to the present date as BAHA then HOSPA treasurer.

“Mark's outstanding contribution has greatly assisted BAHA's evolvement into HOSPA, and helped the Association become the growing and thriving body it is today."
