The Amber Trust would like to congratulate Amber trustee Simon Vincent, who has been awarded a CBE for services to the tourism sector. Overseeing more than 1,000 hotels in 69 countries, Simon has been the executive vice-president of Hilton since 2007.
Simon was awarded an OBE for his services to the hospitality industry in 2015, and received a CBE in the King’s Birthday Honours List in 2023.
Talking to The Caterer, Simon says, ‘I am honoured to be appointed CBE in recognition of these contributions which underscore the importance of hospitality and tourism to the UK economy.’
Simon is committed to supporting his philanthropic interests, dedicating his time and expertise as a trustee for The Amber Trust and Jigsaw School, an independent day school for autistic children and young people.
We are immensely grateful for Simon’s support and congratulate him on his CBE!
