Our IoH CEO Robert Richardson FIH has been named an ‘Industry Titan’ in the newly published Boutique Hotelier Power List 2022.

The list, which is an annual celebration of the movers and shakers considered to be aspirational Hospitality Industry figures and are driving real change in the sector, also recognises individuals who are aspiring their businesses to new heights.

Receiving the news, Robert confirmed: “It is a huge, and unexpected, honour to be featured in the Boutique Hotelier Power List 2022, and to be noted as an ‘Industry Titan’ is a tremendous show of faith, for which I am truly humbled. What makes the Power List particularly special is that it is based on nominations from our hospitality family, so thank you, everyone.”

Explaining why Robert had established himself as an ‘Industry Titan’, The Boutique Hotelier Power List noted: ‘Robert Richardson was named a Young Trailblazer in our 2020 Power List and in just two short years has risen to Industry Titan status. In spring 2021, he assumed the role of CEO at the Institute of Hospitality and was tasked with making the Institute more relevant for the post-pandemic age. With a huge focus on Diversity and Inclusion, Richardson’s initiatives included devising a youth council to inspire entry-level talent and the launch of ‘Future Forum’ – a group that builds best employment practices for persons with disabilities and people who have disadvantages such as ex-offenders.

‘However, Richardson’s biggest achievement is building a funded bursary for Institute of Hospitality membership, targeting industry talent who through financial or personal disadvantage are unable to join the Institute and access the career development this provides. Funding now supports 250 members in its first year.’
