Jane CarsonJane has over 30 years' experience in the hospitality industry. Her expertise spans a range of senior sales and marketing roles with one of the world’s leading hotel marketing companies and includes setting up and running her own highly successful boutique hotel in the beautiful county of Cornwall.
After attaining a degree in Business Studies and Tourism and following on from a brief spell with Heritage Hotels, Jane joined the sales and marketing team at Leading Hotels of the World and worked her way through the company in an impressive career path that culminated in her appointment as Regional Manager for the UK, Ireland, Middle East and South Africa. Jane was in charge of the London operation, from where she looked after the interests of 450 member hotels. With nearly twenty years in a series of high level roles with LHW, it's hard to imagine an area of expertise that Jane hasn't acquired.
In 2002, Jane made the bold move into hotel ownership, buying and totally renovating a delightful property on Cornwall’s Fowey estuary, which she and her husband transformed into a stunning 11 bedroom boutique hotel. The success of the Old Quay House is testament to Jane's expertise and creativity. Now one of Cornwall's celebrated boutique hotels, it was named Best Small Hotel in Cornwall by Cornish Tourism in 2007 and in 2012 received a Cesar Award from the Good Hotel Guide as Best Hotel in Cornwall.
