British Institute of Innkeeping Announces Joycelyn Neve as Non-Executive Director

24 November 2015

The British Institute of Innkeeping (BII), the leading professional body for the licensed retail sector, has appointed Joycelyn Neve as a Non-Executive Director.

Joycelyn Neve founded Seafood Pub Company in 2010 when she was just 25 years old, and the chain now has seven sites across Lancashire. This award-winning operation is renowned for its creative dishes, made using the very best quality produce, with a particular affinity for seafood. Joycelyn’s experience of running successful pubs with a strong food offering makes her an ideal Non-Executive Director for the BII.

The Non-Executive Director’s role is to bring expertise and creative contribution through support of the BII trustees. The Non-Executive Director is engaged to offer strategic direction and oversight of the business, as well as connecting the business and board with networks of industry influencers and organisations as well as calculating risk and audits.

Joycelyn commented on her appointment: “The BII wants people to recognise the opportunities available in the hospitality sector, and see it as a credible career that you can do very well in. This perfectly aligns with what I am trying to instil in my team, and indeed what I have achieved in my own career, so I am keen to help build this awareness both within and outside of the industry. I also hope to be heavily involved with the training bodies provided by the BII including the British Institute of Innkeeping Awarding Body (BIIAB) and Academy of Food and Wine Service (AFWS), and help those members who are looking to improve the food offering at their own pubs.”

Tim Hulme, BII CEO added: “We’re proud to announce Joycelyn is our latest Non-Executive Director, as she personifies exactly what we want to prove to entrants to the industry; that you can build a successful career in hospitality that will be hugely rewarding. Furthermore, as a considered food offering becomes ever more important to pubs, we believe she will provide exceptional insight for our members on developing this.”
