Charles Holdsworth BEng
Non Executive Director
Charles studied engineering at Bath University and his early career was with Lucas engineering. By his mid-twenties he was supporting systems within various engineering departments. A move in the early 90's to Fidelity Investments saw a further seven years working in systems support. Charles then joined an Internet start-up, a consultancy that developed websites and website systems. Having been involved with various development projects, including a hotel group system, Charles started his own business in 2003 and started developing an internet booking system which provides the booking capability on Classic British Hotel's website.
Charles' background in engineering suited the analysis of the requirements and development of a specification that still forms the core of today's internet booking engine product. Having recognised the rapidly changing way which people access the Internet, Charles has made use of the latest software tools available to introduce product updates to the internet booking system that now works on mobile, tablet and desktop alike from one strand of code.
