Melvin Gold FIH
Chair of the Hospitality Magazine Editorial Board
Director of Melvin Gold Consulting Limited

Graduating with an HND in Hotel and Catering Administration in 1981, Melvin spent periods in hotel operations with Inter-Continental Hotels, Thistle Hotels and Metropole Hotels. His career to date has encompassed a blend of hotel industry operations, consultancy and advisory work, and the commercial world. Melvin resigned his position as managing director of PKFs hotel consultancy services in late 2003. He had returned to PKF in 1996, having previously been a senior consultant with the firm, from 1989 to 1992.

During his time with PKF, Melvin brought the benefit of this operational experience to a wide range of consultancy assignments and became well known as one of the leading advisors in the hotel sector. The intervening years were spent with Glencore UK Ltd, an international commodity trader, working on projects ranging from hotel and property investments to oil projects and on aspects including pre-feasibility, financing and contract negotiations.

In April 2004, he established Melvin Gold Consulting Limited, a specialist hotel consultancy advising clients active, or seeking to become active, in the hotel sector. Melvin is a frequent commentator on hotel industry matters at conferences and in the media.

I am delighted to have been asked to chair the editorial board of Hospitality Magazine. The magazine is a vital communication and educational tool of the Institute of Hospitality and the creation of the editorial board should enable the revitalised magazine to match the needs and interests of the members. I hope to facilitate that process.
