Peter Stack (Class of 1995) and Amaris Hospitality CEO has been honoured by peers and welcomed as an Institute of Hospitality Fellow, in recognition of his contribution to the Irish and UK hospitality sector.
The fellowship award acknowledges the importance and expertise of the most senior members of the hospitality, leisure and tourism industries, in over 100 countries worldwide.
Peter, from Kerry, gained his first position in hospitality as a general manager and following an 18-year career with the then Irish-owned business, rose to become CEO of Amaris Hospitality in 2015.
Peter was instrumental in the establishment of Amaris Hospitality having delivered a strategy and plan which culminated in the sale of the company’s hotel assets to a range of international hotel investors, including LRC Group.
Since then, the Amaris Hospitality portfolio has grown to become one of the UK’s largest hotel investment and management groups. The company most recently completed a £10.5m extension to the Custom House Hotel as part of a £21.7m programme within its wider hotel estate.
Commenting on the award, Peter Stack said: “I’m honoured to have received this recognition from my peers within the industry. I’ve had an exciting and diverse career in the hospitality sector in Ireland and the UK and over the years have witnessed the hotel sector adapt and evolve to meet the changing customer trends across so many different areas of our business from advancing the food and drink offer to bringing new digital experiences.”
