GORDON McIntyre, an educator who has spent nearly three decades training hospitality students at City of Glasgow College, has been awarded a fellowship for his contribution to the industry.
McIntyre, associate dean for hospitality and tourism at the college, was presented with the accolade at the annual Scottish Hotel Awards in Glasgow on April 28.
Paul Little, principal and chief executive at City of Glasgow College, said McIntyre “embodies the spirit of the hospitality industry and is a genuine ambassador for the sector, passing on his considerable knowledge and expertise to several generations of students”.
This is not the first time McIntyre has been commended for his contribution to Scottish hospitality and tourism. Last year he was presented with the HIT Scotland Industry award for his commitment to the sector.
“I was not expecting this at all but am delighted to be recognised with such a prestigious award,” said McIntyre.
“It is, of course, a personal honour for me but it is also a tribute to the great team I work with, and a reflection on the talented young people we have the privilege of teaching at the college.”
