CEO’s Professorship extended

Chris Cowls, Eproductive’s CEO, was appointed Visiting Professor at the School of Hospitality and Tourism Management at the University of Surrey for a 3 year term in 2015. During that time Chris was involved in several projects including a major ESRC funded study on hotel productivity as well as teaching Hospitality undergraduates. The most recent work Chris instigated was on the impact of Brexit on hotel staffing which he and Professor Andrew Lockwood presented at HOSPACE in November 2017.

Early in 2018 the term of Chris’s honorary Professorship was extended for a further 3 years. Chris said “I am delighted to be able to continue my work with the School at Surrey which is the UK’s number 1 and World’s number 5 Hospitality Educator.  I see my main role there as helping to bring Hospitality operators and academics together through meaningful projects which help the sector as a whole”.
