Andy Sutton

Andy Sutton

Managing Director

Andy Sutton, founder of Sutton Hospitality Consultants lives and breathes hospitality and leisure – it has been his passion for 25 years. His proven track record for achieving great results spanning the holiday park, leisure and theme park industry commands him enviable respect amongst his industry peers and competitors. No project is too small or too dauntingly large for Andy; whether in his wellies on an independent greenfield site in Snowdonia or ‘suited and booted’ in a Hilton property in Liverpool, you’re guaranteed sound professional advice, based on years of industry experience and knowledge.

Andy’s projects are built from the ground up; firm foundations and careful planning, land development with specialisms in Greenfield Site and Unique Accommodation. Taking a piece of land, planning, developing, building, sales, marketing and then selling an established park with an increase of 130% – all in only 3 years is one of Andy’s proudest achievements. With the mantra of “clients first” and the aim to exceed expectations every single time, Andy founded Sutton Hospitality Consultants, a premium all-in-one solution for hospitality and leisure brands across the UK and worldwide.

Andy’s hand-picked team specialises in all areas of business planning, finance management, on-site development, marketing and training and recruitment. Through collaboration and communication as often as a client needs, the team promises to support the growth of businesses in the industry, every step of the way. Andy’s portfolio includes household brands in the holiday and leisure park industry specialising in the development of greenfield sites, alternative accommodation and introducing his “Totally Managed” brainchild. His plans for the future are to continue to help businesses to grow in his field, with ongoing guidance, expertise and the support of his specialist team.
