Comprised of property, construction and hotel businesses, chairman Surinder Arora, 59, founded this business in 1999 after running bed and breakfast services for Heathrow’s airline staff. In 2016, it opened an InterContinental Hotel and 101 luxury flats next to the O2 arena in London’s Docklands. It also agreed a deal last year to operate hotels at Gatwick and Heathrow airports under the Hilton brand, which brings the number of its London sites to nine.
