Chair and Chief Executive’s Review 

Dominic paul
Dominic Paul, Chief Executive

“Whitbread has had an outstanding year. Whilst the recovery in market demand, in conjunction with a structural decline in the independent hotel sector has provided a helpful backdrop, it is the combination of our own initiatives and our clearly differentiated business model that has delivered such an impressive operational and financial performance.
