UK: Diane Scott, senior hotel consultant at law firm Katten Muchin Rosenman and founder of the Serviced Apartment Networking Group (SANG) has died after a lengthy battle with illness.

After spending more than 40 years with Lloyds Bank, latterly as business development director for its hotels division, Scott joined Katten in January 2017 as part of the hospitality and leisure team.

She was a regular speaker at hotel and serviced apartment events and founded the SANG group, which met regularly at Katten's City of London offices, and more recently via Zoom.

Peter Sugden, partner at Katten, said: "Diane was a very well known and respected figure in the wider hospitality industry and a huge personality amongst her many clients and contacts. She moderated panels at conferences, mentored younger professionals both internally and externally, won new business for Katten regularly, was often asked to give guidance and advice by her former banking clients and, of course, set up from scratch SANG, which she built into a very successful networking group with some 370 members. Her contribution to the wider hospitality industry was enormous."

"Diane was an incredibly positive and proactive person - a genuine force of nature - and she will be very much missed by all those who knew and worked with her," added Sugden.
