Profile

Clive Hillier

Chief Executive Officer
Vision Hospitality Asset Management

During a career spanning more than 22 years in hospitality Clive Hillier has been at the forefront of the sector, managing major international investment and development projects and providing valuable advice to prospective investors and asset owners. Clive is regarded as an authority on hospitality asset management and as such he is a frequent speaker at international conferences.

In 2001 Clive founded Vision, a consultancy formed to offer specialist and independent advice to investors within the hospitality sector. After more than 12 years Vision leads the market in supporting individuals and businesses in their investment, operational and development decisions.

Prior to forming Vision, Clive held positions as Vice-President of Corporate Development at Hilton Group Plc and Director of Hotel Development at Marylebone Warwick Balfour Group Plc. In these roles he was responsible for the acquisition and development of properties around the world, managing the financing, construction and operational strategies of projects from inception to completion.

Working across hospitality investment projects with organisations such as the World Bank, The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development and other major commercial banks Clive developed a unique insight into the financing of the sector and combines this with his operational knowledge to provide credible and valuable advice to investors and asset owners.

As CEO of Vision, Clive has built a strong team of experienced hospitality professionals that work closely with clients to make well informed commercial decisions in a complex and specialist sector.

The active asset management activity of the team includes pre-acquisition due diligence, strategic advice in relation to increasing returns on investment (hold/sell), full owner representation and protection of cash flow.

In addition to the traditional active asset management services, Vision also offers advisory and direct management services.

Recent instructions have included individual assets such as Grosvenor House on London Park Lane (UK), Le Meridien in Split (Croatia), but also portfolios such as the Menzies hotels.
