Yesterday, Monday 9 December 2019, Heritage Consulting by B+R was officially announced. It is based in Las Vegas, for the world.
The ‘B’ is CEO and co-founder Olivia Brown, dynamo former GM of the mighty Bellagio in Las Vegas. The ‘R’ is COO and co-founder Angella Reid, who similarly has a wide experience of luxury hotel brands (she was also the first female Executive Residence and Chief Usher in The White House, personally appointed by President Obama).
‘We both saw a gap to provide concierge-type advisory services to the entire luxury hospitality industry, and later we will extend our reach’, said Olivia Brown yesterday.
Already their network of specialists, who buy into the B+R network, can cover assistance in finding and developing talent; short-term management solutions, hotel advisory services, hotel performance improvements, culture & change management transformation, operator talent search, operational, sales and marketing support; lifestyle coaching. Anything you need? Thanks to such independent collaborators as Donald Bowman, ex-Mandarin Oriental, and Brent Martin, long-time Sofitel followed by Four Seasons – and Claire Seneca, on wellness – they can find the solution, it seems.
There just could be a tendency to think that ‘consultancy’ is a sinecure for yesterday’s men past their prime. Think differently here. The combination of a new-look company that is 100% owned by two vivacious power-houses who happen to be female , namely Olivia Brown and Angella Reid, makes Heritage Consulting by B+R a certain winner
