Meet the Maker

The man in the know...


Chris Ward

The Chief Maker

A highly experienced and respected hospitality professional with a proven track record in curating and delivering award-winning and profitable independent hotels over the last 20 years.

A creative thinker and a practical doer to help you refresh, relaunch or start up. I have been lucky enough to manage some amazing projects in my career so far and I hope I can help you with yours.

Past experience and projects include The Farncombe Estate (Dormy House Hotel & Spa, Foxhill Manor  & The Fish), Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa, Cliveden House, Lime Wood, The Wren’s Hotel Group, Adriatic Luxury Hotels, and Orient Express Hotels, Trains & Cruises (now Belmond).

With a wide network of collaborators and partners, I am able to call upon some of the best minds in the business to help deliver projects for our clients.

If any of this hits the spot, we'd love to hear about your own hotel(s) and have a no obligation chat.
