Allen Simpson Appointed Deputy Chief Executive of UKHospitality


Allen joins UKHospitality from London & Partners, the Mayor of London’s tourism, inward investment and city marketing agency, where he served as Executive Director and, in 2021, Acting Chief Executive. 

He brings a wealth of experience from the tourism and leisure sector and expertise across economic development, business strategy, corporate affairs and communications, having also previously worked at Barclays Bank and the London Stock Exchange. 

In a new role as Deputy Chief Executive, Allen will provide strategic oversight across UKHospitality’s corporate social responsibility, policy and communications output.

The wider UKHospitality senior team remains unchanged. Jackie Marlow, as Chief Operating Officer, continues to oversee membership, operational and commercial matters, and will add finance to her portfolio. Tony Sophoclides remains responsible for UKHospitality’s political engagement and external communications.
