Rupert Culme-Seymour is stepping down from his role at trade body UKHospitality.

A replacement will be announced within the next fortnight, a spokesperson for the organisation confirmed.

Rupert Culme-Seymour was appointed to the position in June last year, to manage the organisation’s commercial and membership growth and event management. He oversaw the group as it went through the merger of the Association of Licensed Multiple Retailers (ALMR) and the British Hospitality Association (BHA).

UKHospitality was established after the merger was approved in February 2018. The trade body represents more than 700 companies.

He joined the ALMR after a 19-year stint at Heineken UK, formerly in the role of regional sales director at the company.

There is no update on what Culme-Seymour's plans are for the future.
