Alastair Storey, the chairman and chief executive of hospitality business Westbury Street Holdings (WSH), is to become the new president of the Institute of Hospitality (IoH).
He will officially take over the post on 13 June, from outgoing president Sir David Michels, the former chief executive of Hilton.
