Joe Horton Glover joins board of Hortons’ Estate Limited

Hortons’ Estate Limited has appointed international business development specialist, Joe Horton Glover, as a non-executive director.

Joe, who is head of performance at Birmingham-based agency Vivify, has more than a decade of experience in business development and data-led marketing, supporting businesses with their growth strategies and generating returns on investment.

He has also been actively involved in Hortons’ social purpose committee since inception and will continue in his role as its communications and publicity officer.

Joe Horton Glover said: “Stepping into this role represents a significant responsibility and opportunity. I look forward to contributing to the company’s growth and working closely with the board and the Horton family to preserve our heritage, whilst driving innovation.”

Following Joe’s appointment to the board of directors in April this year, Henry Horton will be stepping down as non-executive director after 16 years. 

Henry Horton said: “It has been an honour and a privilege to serve Hortons’ Estate Limited and contribute to its legacy. I fully endorse Joe’s appointment, which is an important step in our succession planning strategy. I am confident that Joe will significantly add to our vision of growth and sustainability.”

Peter Horton, chairman of Hortons’ Estate Limited, added: “I am delighted to welcome Joe as a non-executive director. His appointment signifies the passing of the baton to a younger generation and continues the evolution of the board. I’m confident that Joe will bring new ideas and fresh impetus that will greatly benefit our business. 

“Henry has been an outstanding servant to Hortons’ Estate Limited and has made a significant contribution to our growth and development – not least in the restoration of The Grand Hotel Birmingham, which re-established it as an iconic landmark of the city. We thank him for his considerable efforts and look forward to his continued leadership of the social purpose committee.”
