The UK’s leading educational organization for Hospitality Finance, Revenue Management, Marketing and IT Professionals, HOSPA, is delighted to announce that Charlotte Pratt has been appointed to the newly created position of HOSPA Membership and Events Manager.
Formerly Hospitality Events Manager at Osborne, Queen Victoria’s palatial Isle of Wight home at East Cowes, Charlotte is ideally qualified for her new job. No stranger to the hospitality industry, she was only 24 when appointed Reception Manager at the Thistle Marble Arch Hotel, London. Charlotte then moved into event management within the corporate sector – working with the likes of Verizon, Deutsche Bank, Lehman Brothers and JP Morgan. Leaving her corporate City life behind, she then decided to undertake a cordon bleu course, which led her to opening a bakery in Bembridge, Isle of Wight, before ultimately returning to event management.
“Charlotte’s skills and knowledge of event management within the world of finance, together with her hospitality experience, have made her the ideal choice for becoming HOSPA’s Membership and Events Manager,” said HOSPA Chief Executive Jane Pendlebury. “Membership is the lifeblood of our Association and attending to Members’ requirements, together with running our highly topical and informative nationwide events, are a priority concern for HOSPA. I have known Charlotte for 20 years and I know just how much HOSPA Members and Fellows will benefit from her highly professional, inspirational and understanding approach to her work.”
For her part, Charlotte commented: “I am delighted and very excited to be working for such an important, go-ahead and growing professional association as HOSPA. I look forward very much to building on the Association’s success and making HOSPA membership and events a must for hospitality finance, revenue management, marketing and IT professionals.”
