Earlier in his career Seddon held senior positions at Mercer Management
Consulting and at Motorola Communications in the UK.

Andrew Cosslett, chief executive, said: "We are delighted to welcome Tom back to
IHG. He is well known and well respected throughout the industry. I am confident
his deep knowledge of our business together with the fresh perspective he will
have gained over the three years he has been away will serve him and the company
very well."

Seddon holds a Bachelor of Science (BSc) and a Master of Engineering in
Electrical and Electronic Engineering from the University of Bath.

He is married with two children and will relocate with his family from
