Peter Ducker to leave Institute of Hospitality

Peter Ducker FIH (pictured below) is to leave his role as chief executive of the Institute of Hospitality (IoH).

He will remain in his post until early April, when he will move into a consultancy role. 

Ducker has spent the last eight years at the helm of the institute, driving forward impressive results and building the institute into the professional body for hospitality that the industry knows today.

“Under Peter’s leadership the IoH has built a strong reputation for providing its members with fantastic opportunities for lifelong learning," says Kellie Rixon MBE FIH, chair of the Institute Supervisory Board.

"He leaves us in the summer with our thanks and gratitude for being instrumental in creating a strong platform from which the IoH can continue to grow and support its membership.

"The institute has retained Peter’s expertise to help us deliver our commitment to chartered status and support the new chief executive until June 2021”.

“It has been an honour to lead the institute through a period of regeneration during which we have restored the organisation’s finances, built its membership and developed new initiatives that greatly increase its value to the hospitality industry," adds Ducker. 

"I am particularly proud of the mentoring scheme, our embracing of technology to revolutionise the way we deliver much of our professional development and the competitions that we run.”
