PRIDE OF MANCHESTER - celebrating life in the rock'n'goal capital of the world!
Pride Of Manchester
Meet the Pride Of Manchester team
The view from our office in Castlefield

Pride Of Manchester is a labour of love, ran part-time by the people who brought you the Hotels Of Manchester, Manchester Theatres, Restaurants Of Manchester, Stadium Hotels and Hotels For Europe websites...

Meet the team below...

Neil Jones - Chief Executive

As Chief Executive of the Hotels For Europe group, Neil Jones, is the man behind Pride Of Manchester. He works day and night on the website, splitting his time between offices in Manchester and Switzerland. A proud wearer of his Adidas Ian Brown Superstar trainers, he has a season ticket at Old Trafford and also follows FC United, driving around the region in his TVR (registration plate M4NCR just to show how nuts about Manchester he really is). A regular visitor to Manchester's finest restaurants, Neil, originally from Bury, where he also used to DJ, shares an addiction for the city with so many others who visit the website...

He has an annoying habit of boring everyone about how good the city is and can usually be heard saying 'they're from Manchester you know' after every song on the radio. His record collection contains almost every Manchester musician ever, although his favourites include The Space Monkeys ("if they'd been from London they'd have been huge!"), David Gray ("the stuff he released before White Ladder was his best"), The Stone Roses ("what can I say!?!"), I Am Kloot ("wonderful!") and James ("they'll be sorely missed!")

Robert Jones - Managing Director

Robert Jones rejoined the Pride Of Manchester team after returning from a year in Australia. His work didn't stop there though, with the website getting much welcome advertising at Sydney's famous 'Manchester Night' (every Tuesday at the Kings Pub). Despite always wanting to live 'down under' Rob couldn't wait to come back home where he's got a season ticket at Old Trafford. A massive film buff and collector of Manchester United video's and DVD's, Rob is the guy responsible for compiling the exhaustive Man United pages on our site. He's addicted to watching episodes of Early Doors, The Royle Family, Cold Feet and Phoenix Nights. Rob is also responsible for the running of the superb Manchester Theatres and Stadium Hotels websites.

Ingun Nolsoe Olsen

Faroese born Ingun Nolsoe Olsen joined the Hotels For Europe team in 2005, taking charge of the Manchester live comedy guide and Faroe Islands Hotels website. Splitting her time between Manchester, the Faroe Islands, Germany and Switzerland, Ingun loves Manchester - especially shopping for bargains and eating in the many restaurants. A Manchester United supporter and big fan of Lisa Stansfield, Badly Drawn Boy and Mint Royale, Ingun's picking up her Manc accent by working her way through her Cold Feet, Shameless, Royle Family and Phoenix Nights collections..

Nick Manning

Nicholas Manning is the newcomer to the Hotels For Europe team, working largely on the hotel sites. As an avid Manc music lover, Nick can often be found at the unsigned nights taking place around the city. As a Manchester City fan from Stockport, he's normally the whipping boy in the office from the rest of the team.

Ian Jones - Finance Director

Ian Jones looks after the finances of the Hotels For Europe group as well as being a non-executive Director of Paul McCartney's LIPA in Liverpool amongst others. He spent many years as a Regional Corporate Director for the Royal Bank of Scotland and is a massive Manchester United fan - travelling all over Europe to watch them.

Jim Humphreys - Consultant

As head of JDH Designs, Jim Humphreys, works as a consultant to Pride Of Manchester and is responsible for many of the banner advertisements and photo collagés throughout the site. He is a man of many tastes and lives on a hillside above Ramsbottom (is that then Upper Ramsbottom?), in the beautiful Lancashire countryside. From his office window he enjoys views stretching out all over Greater Manchester. It is perhaps this tranquil view of the region that fuels his desire for the city. He's a mad Buzzcocks fan who loves to walk the region's beautiful countryside.
