Mark Britton Jones

Mark has 30 years of professional experience within hospitality, airlines, and travel and tourism, providing him with the commercial knowhow needed for the hotel sector.

Mark has trained and worked in hotels from his early professional life, and advanced his knowledge of the industry with an MBA in International Hospitality Management from Glion Institute of Higher Education.
