In March 1997 he led a 92m management buy-in of 25 hotels from Queens Moat House plc with Duke Street Capital, and six months later managed the refinancing of County Hotels Group plc with a dual listed bond offering in Luxembourg. In January 1999 the company was successfully sold to Regal Hotel Group plc. achieving a 30% internal rate of return.
