John Jones has been promoted to managing director at Welcome Systems Ltd after a rapid rise over nine months from commercial director at the hotel and restaurant booking software firm, based in Pitsford, Northamptonshire.
An expert in corporate strategy, John first cut his professional teeth in the hospitality sector taking on and transforming Northampton University’s commercial catering, conference and hotel services.
Since joining Welcome Systems Ltd he has relished the task of continuing to build the company’s long-term client relationships across the UK.
“Over the last 30 years Welcome Systems Ltd has become established as a market leader in the supply of software and hardware solutions for the hospitality sector.
“We put people first and our expertise in property management systems, online reservations, channel management and touch-screen electronic point of sale technology is second-to-none.
“I’m delighted to have taken on this new challenge and look forward to continuing to work with our clients across the UK.”
John takes on the role previously held by Sam Wight, who has been with Welcome Systems Ltd since its early days and moves to become company secretary, a position which will keep her at the heart of the business while allowing more time with her family.
