Ducker to leave IoH

Peter Ducker FIH has announced that he is to leave his role as chief executive of the Institute of Hospitality (IoH). He has spent the last eight years at the helm, driving forward impressive results and building the IoH into the professional body for hospitality that it is today.

Kellie Rixon MBE FIH, chair of the institute supervisory board, said: “Under Peter’s leadership, the IoH has built a strong reputation for providing its members with fantastic opportunities for lifelong learning. 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.”

Ducker added: “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. 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.”

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