    LongJump Holdings LTD www.longjumpholdings.com Following my career in Nammos, I took the liberty to open my own Hospitality Management & Consulting company and work exclusively in the close/family environment of Mr Teddy Sagi, Israeli billionaire. That gave me the chance to advise, consult and manage various projects some of them in contrast to my previous experiences. My trustworthy role, close to Mr Sagi does not allow me to expose all the projects I participated, thus are some of them.

    After my career in "high end" restaurants in Europe, I took the chance given to me to manage a new concept restaurant in Dubai.

My Job description: * Create all the S.O.Ps. and the Manuals of the new concept based on the guidelines of the new brand we created and train the F.o.H staff according to the brand's guidelines and basic principles of service. * Ensure the smooth daily operation of the outlet considering the customers, the suppliers and the partner companies such as the Address Hotel and the Marina Mall, both part of Emaar group, and instruct the managers to their duties. * Annual budgeting and profitability of the company. * PR with the guests, determine the social media strategy, being the "face of Fume" for the local press, guard the brand's values was also part of my duties. * Oversee the table plan.

    F&B service

    in Mykonos - Greece and St. Moritz - Switzerland After a rising career in Nobu Matsuhisa Athens I was promoted in our stores in Mykonos in the summer and st. Moritz in the winter season, to continue my career in a more demanding role. I worked a lot with my staff and their ability to up-sell daily. As a result, we achieved the best year ever in our stores in Mykonos (as an F&B department) with more than 20% revenue above the estimated budget. This success was combined with a 9% economizing of the operational expenses. My Job description: * Annual budgeting of the F&B department for both outlets, The Belvedere Hotel and Matsuhisa Mykonos the restaurant. * Oversee the "Seating Plan" of the outlets. Approximate 250 covers in the restaurant with a capacity of 110 seats, was our daily average in the high seasons. * Weekly schedules and administration for the F&B staff (62 members) * Daily operation "Manager on duty" for outlets. (More detailed agenda for the daily tasks will be provided upon request) Big Projects: * Opening of the newest hotel of the company, the "Seaside Cottage by Belvedere" in Mykonos. Together with the owners we defined the F&B concept, such as the breakfast, the menus the working hours etc. * G.M of the promotion "Matsuhisa Mykonos in Grace Santorini". In October 2013, our chefs and I travelled to Santorini island to take over the restaurant of the Grace Hotel for 10 days. Goal was to evaluate the feedback for a future opening of Matsuhisa in Santorini. The Promotion was a huge success. www.belvederehotel.com
