Simon Roberts

After a classical training in hotel management at Ealing Hotel School, I spent some time learning the business in Milan and, from there, went on to work in many of the top hotels of London’s West End.

After 10 years at the Stafford Hotel in St James’s, I left as Manager in 1992 to become only the eighth Secretary of the National Liberal Club in more than a century.

In 2018 I was invited to join the Board and, as the Company’s Chief Executive, I lead the Senior Management Team and have overall responsibility for the day-to-day running of the Club. I am a member of the Board’s Finance, Staffing and Governance Groups.

A Fellow of the Institute of Hospitality, I have served as President of the Réunion des Gastronomes and Chairman of the Association of London Clubs. Away from work, I am a Sidesman and Server at St George’s Church, Hanover Square.

I love music, theatre, opera and ballet and enjoy playing the trombone, singing, skiing, walking, travel and – as a self-confessed Italophile – I have a great and enduring love of all good things Italian. (Simon has been a Director since 2018)
