The Hotel Manager of Guoman Hotels’ Charing Cross, Vidur Kapur has been selected as one of the hospitality industry’s rising stars at the coveted Acorn Awards.
Now in its 25th year, the Acorn Awards ‘30 under 30’ recognises the brightest young prospects in the hospitality industry.
Kapur started his career in hotels at a young age working in a number of four and five star hospitality establishments before embarking on a career with Guoman and Thistle Hotels in 2003. With Guoman and Thistle, Kapur has quickly climbed the ladder from Food and Beverage Manager to Hotel Manager - showing a flair for people management and exceptional leadership qualities. Whilst quickly progressing in his career, Vidur has illustrated his commitment and dedication to his personal development managing to study for a Bachelor of Arts in Hospitality Management.
Riddian Davies, General Manager, Charing Cross comments: “I’m extremely proud that Vidur has been recognised with this accolade, it is much deserved. Vidur has demonstrated incredible motivation, passion and commitment in his role, with a remarkable ability to get the best out of his team. He’s a bright, switched-on individual with integrity and strong business acumen and has proved an asset to the hotel; particularly over the last twelve months as we’ve been enhancing the Charing Cross experience to complement the hotel’s multi-million pound Buckingham Wing refurbishment. I have every confidence Vidur will grow to become a true industry leader – watch this space!”
Kapur picked up his award this week at the glittering Acorn Awards ceremony held at Coworth Park Hotel, Berkshire. He added, “I’m thrilled to receive this award. To be recognised for all the hard work is just a fantastic feeling but I could not have achieved my goals and got to where I am today without some inspirational mentors and the backing of a fantastic team here at Charing Cross.”
