Tell Us About Your Background

With 20+ years experience in Hospitlaity, my career began on cruise lines in Miami. I then moved to Thailand into Food & Beverage within hotels. A few years later, as Director of F&B I opened Thailand’s first design hotel. Here we developed a new hotel group brand and managed 3 properties as GDFB. I had a short stint in Meetings & Convention centers in Bangkok before becoming a Hotel GM in Thailand and later the Maldives. My next chapter has been in Recruitment within the Hospitality industry – having a deeper understanding of the industry makes my role very rewarding. 


Why Recruitment?

It has been a natural progression for me. During my time in hotels I was hiring staff and came to love the satisfaction of giving the right people the right opportunities to grow and develop themselves. 

What Is Your Favourite Destination & Why?

My favourites would be the Norwegian Fiords and Alaska. Both places just have a certain magnetism, it is purely nature at its best.

Prior to my hospitality career, I used to be a Romanian fencing champion!
