BII appoints Suzanne Smith as non-executive director

The British Institute of Innkeeping (BII) has appointed Suzanne Smith as a non-executive director.

Smith is currently head of recruitment and people development at Admiral Taverns, which she joined in 2010.

Her role has seen her lead the transformation of the company's licensee recruitment and training offer.

She previously worked for the BII between 2004 and 2008 in membership. Smith promoted the BII to new entrants into the trade and focused on driving membership with the regional councils and pub companies.

In her role as non-executive she will offer strategic direction and oversight of the business.

Smith said: "Through my new role as a non-executive director, I hope to give something back to an organisation that helps so many in the industry.

"I aim to use my previous experience to target membership growth, help the membership package continue to evolve and also bring a refreshed approach to the organisation."

She added: "From my time in this sector, I believe that in order to provide the best quality service to the individuals that the BII serves, it is important to actively listen to industry needs."

Tim Hulme, BII CEO added: "We are extremely thrilled that Suzanne has been elected to be a non-executive director for the BII.

"Suzanne brings a wealth of experience to the role and her experience will be instrumental in the way she is able to inform and shape ideas to benefit our members."
