• Whitbread leads Europe for corporate governance

Whitbread was ranked highest amongst publicly-quoted hotel companies in Europe in terms of corporate governance, according to the latest report from HVS Executive Search.

Last year’s winner, The Rezidor Hotel Group, was ranked second, followed by the InterContinental Hotels Group. HVS said: "It is encouraging to note that overall, and despite being stricter in allocating points, average scores increased. Management has looked to the board for more guidance and in turn boards had a more hands-on involvement in helping companies navigate through difficult times."
