The Team at Paragon Hospitality Consultants
Mark Platt, founder of Paragon Hospitality Consultants is an award-winning hospitality professional with over 25 years’ experience in the hospitality industry.
The team at Paragon Hospitality Consultants have extensive experience within the UK and international hospitality arena encompassing new builds, rebranding, positioning or preparation for sale.
"I had the pleasure of working with Mark Platt and Paragon Hospitality Consultants on 2 occasions. Firstly, as Consultant GM at The Feversham Arms and Black Swan Hotels in Helmsley, and then again at the Delta by Marriot in Milton Keynes, the first Delta in the UK, as Consulting Hotel Director.
On both occasions Mark was positioned to successfully oversee periods of intensive change at the hotels.
In Milton Keynes in particular, Mark oversaw the transition from Hilton to a Marriot brand, he built a strong new team at the hotel, directed the critical path to successfully rebrand and oversaw major refurbishment works whilst keeping the guests coming through the doors. No mean feat!"
Kate Bentley - Director
Vroom Revenue Management
"Mark was a great supporter and Director of the Leeds Hotels and Venues Association. He was encouraging of all agencies within the city working collaboratively to promote Leeds and worked tirelessly to this end. He managed many projects on behalf of LHVA and represented the association at many events, including the Leeds in Milan trade visit. His professional approach and knowledge of hospitality is second to none. I would highly recommend him for any NED positions."
