The Story of JG Collection
Ever since I can remember, hotels and hospitality have been part of my life, whether as a porter at one of Lord Forte’s Stratford-Upon-Avon based properties or whilst training to be a chef at South Warwickshire College. Without sounding like a cliché, service and hotels are part of my DNA, combined with a desire to always grow, learn and do better. I deliberately set JG Collection up to stay small and relevant, borne out of a history of working with some of the world’s leading hotel brands such as Four Seasons, Conrad, Landmark and The Hempel Hotel. The desire to establish a business development company emerged from a combination of working alongside many large market leaders such as Leading Hotels and Preferred and as I rose through the ranks, I began to move further away from the very thing I love about this business: its people and relationships.
With that ethos established in 2005, JG Collection has always had a Member First approach, which lies at the very heart of everything we do. We have been fortunate to work with some amazing hotels, past and present, though at their core is their people – the main reason we strive to make them successful and our motivation for engaging with expert travel professionals. The (JG) Collection assembled is small yet perfectly formed, each hotel providing authentic experiences in their destinations by offering a high degree of personalised, quality service. Whilst taking our clients’ message and brand and raising a property’s profile amongst our clientele, we take a consultancy role to ensure our shared experience enhances and truly engages with our customers.
