Andrew Hughes started his hospitality career flipping hamburgers at McDonalds as a teenager. A Rotary exchange year in Germany led to a passion for travel, including a two year stint as a tour manager for Top Deck travel, escorting groups across Europe and the Middle East in the late 90s. Andrew first started working in the hotel industry with regional roles with Best Western and IHG, managing the leisure business for 43 hotels in Australia & New Zealand. In more recent times, Andrew was a member of the opening team for Atlantis, The Palm and is currently looking after sales & marketing for the Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate – Dubai.
Andrew’s passion for personal growth has led to a path of many large personal events. In 2001, he did a race around the world completion, winning by 8km and most recently completed a charity event by riding an autorickshaw 3000 km across India in the space of 2 weeks.
