Jane Pendlebury’s career in hospitality began as a management trainee with De Vere hotels in 1985 while studying for a degree in Hospitality Management in Bournemouth. Her next move was to the


Castle hotel in Taunton, working for Kit Chapman. “I ended up being offered a job by a hotel regular,” she explains. “So I went to work at a conference booking agency where the salary was almost double.” From there, Pendlebury sold


technology to hotels – property management systems and point of sales systems by firms like Eltrax and EasyRMS – before landing the role of vice- president for Europe at Agilysis. She adds: “I had my second


child and carried on working for a year with two young children at home before deciding it would be easier to be self- employed, so I set up Penrose Partnership and took contracts, which suited my stage of life much better. “I mainly helped new


companies launch into the UK before working with Hospa to run the membership and events office. I did that for a couple of years, working closely with Carl Weldon, before jumping at the chance to apply for the role of chief executive.”
