Initial Style MD quits in board restructure

Following its acquisition and restructure by the Alterative Hotel Group (AHG), Initial Style Conferences (ISC) managing director Alastair Stewart has left "to pursue other opportunities". The board also has a new chief operating officer (ceo) and finance director. Tony Dangerfield has been appointed ceo for the ISC business with effect from 2 May 2006. Dangerfield joins ISC from Millennium Copthorne Hotels, where he was European president. Phillip Adams will become financial director in early May. He joins the business from Intercontinental Hotels, where he held a similar position for the UK and Ireland division. AHG chairman Richard Balfour-Lynn commented: “Conferences, training and meetings are the lifeblood of ISC, and the company has achieved premier league status in this market. However we believe there is considerable upside in the business and the new board is determined to deliver that to the investors, customers and to staff. Tony and Philip have been chosen for their exceptional talent and I look forward to them contributing to the development and growth of the ISC business.”
