The Founder

Renata Fernandes

Originally from Sao Paulo, Brazil and of Italian descent, Renata has been based in the UK for 19 years. What was supposed to be a short period at Glasgow University turned into a 19 years love affair with the region's luxury hotels, luxury industry and publishing sector. 

Besides her press activities, Renata has over 15 years of experience managing marketing and branding for some of Europe's best luxury hotels, she is an official judge for the Scottish Hotel Awards, and a hotel inspector, assessing over one thousand properties in the last 10 years. 

Among her cherished past professional experiences are judging for the Scottish Magazine Awards, working as an adhoc interpreter and translator for the UN and NGOs, working for the Ministry of External Affairs of India in Sao Paulo, ghostwriting for well-known public figures.

Being a self confessed classic and sports car aficionado, Renata tries to unite her love for hotels with her love for cars through her work which can be followed via social media (@editorfivestar) and the hashtag #HotelsandCars.
