Meet The Team
etc hospitality was founded by Alan Morgan and Stephen Easthope in 2009. Both spent years working within hospitality organisations and recognising the challenges faced with collecting, checking and producing financial information that is meaningful to management teams and owner-managed businesses.
On graduating from Birmingham University with an honours degree in Hospitality Business Management, Alan spent several years working in operations before moving across to the financial side of hospitality. He has since held senior financial positions encompassing all aspects of the industry, with clients including Searcys, Corus Hotels, Akkeron Hotels, Noble House Leisure and Fishworks PLC. Alan is currently Financial Director for a number of our clients.
Having started out in operational roles 20+ years ago, Stephen qualified as an accountant in 2004. He has continued to work in the hospitality sector holding various Finance Director roles including Searcys, Richard Corrigan, Company of Cooks, Peyton and Byrne and Ignite Group. Stephen and Alan Morgan founded ETC Hospitality in 2009.
