The team



I have more than 20 years’ experience working in the hospitality and catering industry, ranging from 5 star hotels and restaurants in South Africa to elegant boutique hotels in Cornwall and Devon for the Polizzi/Forte Family. The last 12 years I have worked with some of the best leading agencies in London and Oxfordshire on both permanent and temporary recruitment for front and back of house. I’ve also been the trainee manager at an award-winning in-house training centre, where all front of house staff were trained before they head of to work with clients.  I’m passionate about good food, wine and service and have a keen eye for spotting the same passion in others.

My zeal in life is people and the fulfilment one gets in seeing them reach their full potential.  I have over 26 years client relationship management experience, dealing with a wide variety of clients with challenging staffing and recruitment needs. Having worked in hospitality and catering myself, I have a real appreciation of the challenges, expectations and needs of the candidates I recruit and place. I have a unique ability to enthuse my candidates so as to meet the needs our clients in what is often an eventful and competitive market. When not stretching people’s potential here at IPH you will find me stretching on my yoga mat!
