Commercial Manager, Hoseasons Ltd
Winner: Revenue Management Level 2, completed September 2017

After  completing  a  BSc  Management  at the University of Worcester, Henry’s  career  started  in  the  leisure industry as a windsurfing instructor in the Mediterranean, working for  Neilson Holidays.

Since   then,   his   career   has   taken   a   slightly  different   tack.      He   continued to   work   for  Neilson    Holidays    at    their    Head    Office    in  Brighton  as  a Business  Development  Executive,  before  the opportunity arose to move to Japan  to work as a Hotel General Manager for a small  independent  luxury  Hotel  Management  business.   A few years later he returned to the  UK  and  joined  the  holiday  park  industry  as  a  Revenue   Manager   in   Devon   overseeing   the  accommodation    hire    business    across    eight  holidays parks. 

Early  in  2017,  and  a  couple  of months  into  his  studies,  Henry  says  an  opportunity  arose  to  join  an  exciting forward - thinking business and to expand his s kill set and knowledge in the industry – and  he  joined Hoseasons Ltd.

As Commercial Manager, Henry’s role is to oversee six Revenue Analysts tasked with manipulating  prices  of  thousands  of  units  on  a  dynamic  pricing  platform.  The  goal  being  to  ensure  that the  accommodation hire trading (and primary revenue stream) responds according to the market, match  forecasted pace,  provide  year on year growth to partners  and that the business profits continue to  grow.

Henry says that the course has enabled him to app ly academic grounding, theory  and background to  concepts and issues that he comes across every day, as well as providing industry proven and  researched ideas and business solutions.  He has also encouraged two of his team members to  undertake the Revenue M anagement programme, and he is acting as their in - house mentor.
