About me

I am currently in Dubai and I am available to start immediately. With over 20 years experience in all facets of hospitality, FOH and General Management, I feel I would be an asset to any company I am fortunate enough to work for. I am a natural leader and treat all my staff with the utmost respect and professionalism. I am firm believer in effective planning to overcome challenges and achieve goals. My achievements in the last 20 years are vast and range from multiple Top100 Restaurants in South Africa awards, to multiple Diners Club Winelist of the year awards, to multiple service excellence awards from the Chaine de Rotisseurs. I would very much like an interview at your earliest convenience. Many thanks.
