I started my Kew Green Hotels journey in 2017 with 20 years of experience under my belt, beginning as General Manager at Courtyard by Marriott London Gatwick and going on to be an Area General Manager for Gatwick, Rochester and Ashford. Since August 2021, I have been Director of Operations for the South-Central Region. 

My passion for hospitality began in 1997 when I began my industry experience with various hotel and event management roles, ranging from Hilton to Eurolynx Event Management. Moving across the globe, my next venture was as a Convention Centre Manager in Auckland at SKYCITY Entertainment Group. I went on to manage a variety of hospitality venues such as Park Plaza Nottingham, Eastwell Manor Hotel, Spa & Golf and Copthorne Hotels London Gatwick. 

Working in hotels isn’t just my day job - since 2018 I have been the Chairman for Gatwick Hotels Association and I was a Member of the Executive Council for Gatwick Diamond Business for 4 years.
