I joined Kew Green in March 2020 as Group Finance Director with 25 years of experience working in the hospitality sector. My career started with Southern Sun Hotel Group in my home country of South Africa, which ignited my passion for this industry. 

I went on to hold a variety of positions around the world, from South Africa to the British Virgin Islands and the UK, working with the global brands including Le Meriden, Malmaison & Hotel Du Vin, Rocco Forte and Virgin Limited Edition. 

Specialising in finance, I trained with Price Waterhouse Coopers which supported my various roles in self-accounting entities, corporate finance and group operational finance. With a detail-orientated approach, I work with our international stakeholders to enhance our processes and reporting to deliver efficient and future-proofed solutions across the groups through technology and people.
