Douglas O’Neill started his professional career as a London based solicitor, specialising in offshore tax and trust advice. Douglas made a dramatic career change in 2001 taking on the role of business development director at Inntel, a leading UK provider of meetings, accommodation, event management and business travel services.
In 2003 Douglas was promoted to managing director and in 2012, having a strong belief in the company’s future, he bought the company.
Today Douglas is managing director and owner of Inntel, which employs over 100 staff at its headquarters in Feering, Essex. Since he took over the business, annual turnover has grown by over 300% and is now more than £50 million. Inntel’s clients are some of the UK’s largest organisations and include three FTSE top 20 companies. The company completes more than 300,000 transactions annually and develops market leading technology specifically for their clients.
In his spare time Douglas enjoys running and especially completing marathons - 15 to date.
