Douglas Grant

My career background is in the hotel & leisure sector with experience in operations, consultancy and subsequently as an industry specialist in investment banking. These roles have involved working for international companies such as Forte, Inter Continental and Nomura. I set up as an independent consultant in 1998 and have been involved in the assessment of various projects throughout the UK and Europe and recently helped form a cross sector consulting alliance.

This work often includes supporting investors and owners in all aspects of Business Development including site assessments , market studies, feasibility work, planning related support, operator search and owner representation.

I am a fluent Portuguese speaker and regular, but slow, cyclist.

What are the top things you would like other members to know about your business?

• I provide support at a strategic and project specific level in the market assessment, asset management and development of hotel & leisure opportunities.

• I provide independent, flexible input capable of moving a range of projects forward for anyone owning, buying or building hotels & leisure assets and have extensive sector contacts across a wide range of disciplines

• The hotel & leisure sector has some very specific characteristics that distinguish it from other forms of property –I can help demystify these, provide relevant market knowledge and help move projects forward for owners and investors

How has TEN helped you so far?

I have enjoyed meeting people from a wide range of disciplines and industries and find the regular presentations by outside speakers informative. The culture is helpful and supportive for independent business owners.

How can you help TEN?

I would be pleased to help anyone setting up on their own and needing some support and /or interested, for whatever reason, in the sector in which I have experience.
I am also open to working collaboratively on any projects where there may be mutual benefit in exploring specific opportunities where my skills set could add value to a project/client.
I am genuinely interested in widening my interests outside of my niche so keen to collaborate with others where there may be a potential fit.
