Hotel management consultancy, Michels & Taylor, has called on Beacon - a leading British purchasing company - to handle its purchasing strategy across all categories.

Beacon currently manages spend across five Michels & Taylor properties, with an overall spend under management of approximately £1.5 million – a figure that is set to increase along with the growth of the company’s portfolio. 

Michels & Taylor is one of Europe’s leading hotel management, consultancy and asset management businesses, offering a range of services for hotel owners, investors and banks. It currently works with around 45 hotels in the UK, predominantly managing assets, as well as working with hotels in a comprehensive operational capacity.

Working with Michels & Taylor allows hotel managers to focus on the day-to-day management of the hotel and Beacon’s expert team will be managing the hotels’ purchase ledgers in partnership with the Michels & Taylor team.

Beacon was approached by Michels & Taylor to manage the purchasing spend across three of its properties, which soon increased to five properties including the prestigious Ellenborough Park in Cheltenham.

“This is a fantastic opportunity for Beacon and certainly one that we are excited about," says Paul Connelly, MD at Beacon. "The hotel market is always evolving and Michels & Taylor is consistently ahead of the curve. We are looking forward to growing our business with Michels & Taylor as it inevitably continues to take on further properties, which will be of great commercial benefit to both parties.”
