The team at Drayton is divided into groups based on industry when it comes to working with clients. For example, a selection of the employees focus on working with universities, colleges and schools; another group concentrates on media, theatre, television companies and the Arts, and so on. This means that there is one unit that focuses on the hotel industry. In utilising this work dynamic, it means that the various teams become experts in their field. The ‘Hotel Team’ is managed by Max, who has worked at Drayton for over 8 years, and has specialised in hotels for the past 6.

Below is a brief introduction into a few of Drayton’s hotel clients.
