(Alliance News) - Irish hotel operator Dalata Hotel Group PLC on Tuesday said it has appointed former Tesco PLC executive Elizabeth McMeikan as an independent non-executive director with immediate effect.

McMeikan currently serves as senior independent director at pub chain JD Wetherspoon PLC and senior independent director at student accommodation provider Unite Group PLC. She established Tesco Express in 1994 and was appointed Stores director for Change Management and Human Resources in 1997.

"With the breath of McMeikan's experience across the hospitality, retail and food & beverage sectors, she will be a valuable addition to the board, and we look forward to her contribution. As we continue to grow our business across the UK, McMeikan's knowledge and expertise in that market will be of great benefit," said Dalata Chair John Hennessy.

Dalata Hotel shares were up 3.0% at 443.00 pence each in London on Tuesday afternoon.
