Sean Valentine
Past Chairman
The Aspire Group

Sean is one of the industry's young leaders with a career structure that has encompassed major business development for client and employer alike. Before taking on the role of Managing Director and shareholder of the Aspire Group, Sean was Managing Director and shareholder of a retail focused hospitality company.

Sean has also been Sales and Marketing Director for the second largest catering organisation in the world developing such keynote projects for Ascot Hospitality where he scored high success for his company via the creation of the Ascot Racecourse direct sales network. This innovation subsequently transformed the way in which catering was managed at Ascot — and in the process added several millions to the earning programme for both parties.
