About Salon Hospitality Consulting

Salon Hospitality Consulting are a leading firm of highly qualified advisors working in hospitality, tourism and leisure around the globe.

Our multi-disciplinary team of senior practitioners has an excellent track record after building up decades of experience at firms such as Deloitte Consulting, Laventhol & Horwath, Savills, Christie Group, Grant Thornton and Pannell Kerr Foster.

This pedigree means we have one of the longest-serving teams in the industry, with continual service since the eighties. It’s one of the reasons why our UK-based LLP is trusted by clients ranging from investors, developers and property owners, to governments and NGOs, corporate operators, private businesses and trusts.


Professional, Approachable & Passionate

We are singularly focused on the sector we love and we believe that this passion elevates the quality of all our work. Whether we are creating a tourism master plan for a whole country, a corporate development strategy or a feasibility study for a new hotel or resort, you get highly experienced advisors who have expertise and discipline honed during years at global firms.

The Advantage of a Smaller Consultancy

Salon, a bespoke hospitality consultancy, offers you something that the big players can’t always offer: affordability.  We set up Salon in 2001 to provide a real alternative, offering the high-quality strategic and transformational services you would expect from a larger firm, but without the overheads.Yet you still get the same quality controls and governance structures, all backed up by proven methodologies and a firm grounding in operational and financial detail.  We’re small enough to be agile, yet we have a network of Associates that allows us to scale up when we need to.

We Are A truly international team

Chaired by former Deloitte Partner Dries de Vaal, the all-senior team is fluent in a number of languages and collectively has worked in practically every type of hospitality-related business in over 75 countries across the globe. We can create strategies for corporate expansion or diversification, brand strategies for new foodservice concepts, and with excellent relationships with insolvency specialists, we are also experts in business recovery.

Combining this breadth of international knowledge with an approachable style and the latest industry thinking, Salon Hospitality Consultancy can hit the ground running, taking ownership of projects and deliver excellent results at cost-effective fee rates.
