The Berkshire-based Donnington Valley Group is part of the Peter Michael Collection, a family owned business that both owns and manages hotel and leisure operations. Amongst its owned properties are the 5-star Vineyard at Stockcross, the 4-star Donnington Valley Hotel & Spa and the Donnington Valley Golf Club, an 18-hole parkland course with a Grade II listed Victorian clubhouse.
Recognising the need to focus on reducing operating costs to generate profit improvement, but without a specific purchasing function, Daniel Buck, Finance Manager for the Donnington Valley Group, acknowledged that a more structured approach was needed and so engaged the services of Expense Reduction Analysts, the UK’s largest cost and purchase management consultancy.

“Another positive impact of the profit improvement exercise has been the creation of a cost conscious culture within the organisation, which has also raised the credibility of the purchasing function.”
