Tej is owner and Managing Director of Dhillon Hotels Ltd, a chain of six historic and characterful hotels based in the home counties. Tej started work in the City before starting his own property development company, "I got some money together and convinced a bank that I had a viable project. It was a residential development. It didn't make a vast profit but it worked." He then spent four years buying run-down buildings and converting them to three-star standard hotels aimed at business travellers. He has now sold his first hotels and moved onto hotels with some character in areas where the market is dominated by bigger, chain-owned properties.
