Recognising a lifetime of service to Hospitality

Recognising a lifetime of service to Hospitality

Peter Morrison, Proprietor of Christchurch’s luxury boutique hotel, The Classic Villa, has been inducted into the Hospitality New Zealand Hall of Fame.

The HNZ Hall of Fame is made up of individuals who have made significant contributions to the hospitality industry, who are admired and respected by their peers and exemplify excellence and dedication to the Hospitality industry.
With a career spanning just over 40 years, Peter Morrison is a mainstay of the Christchurch hospitality scene. He holds various executive roles, including his current role as Vice-President of the national board of Hospitality New Zealand. He is also a World Director of SKAL International, the world’s leading tourism and hospitality organisation.

“I am delighted to accept this honour,” Mr Morrison said. “Hospitality has been my career all my working life and it’s wonderful to be recognised in this way.”

Peter Morrison started his career in the mid-1970s as a management trainee for Lion Nathan, gaining valuable management experience in various hotels throughout the country. He moved to Christchurch in 1986 where he managed the Hotel Russley, before becoming one of the owners. Throughout the 1990s, his company Morrison Hospitality Management Ltd successfully owned and managed a number of accommodation, bar and restaurant establishments including, Morrisons on Merrin in Avonhead and the Mansfield House & Tavern in Merivale. With his partner Jan Clarke, he has been welcoming guests at The Classic Villa since 2006.

Hospitality NZ Chief Executive Vicki Lee said Mr Morrison has given so much of himself for the industry. “He's been a champion of hospitality through many changes of government and legislation. You won't find a more caring and generous person than Peter.”

In last year’s Queens Birthday Honours, Mr Morrison was awarded an MNZM (Member of the New Zealand Order of Merit) for services to the hospitality industry.
