Brand Director, Another Place & Watergate Bay Hotel
I’ve worked in hospitality marketing for over 30 years. In 2000 I relocated to Cornwall to join Rick Stein’s Seafood Restaurant and then in 2003 moved to Watergate Bay Hotel first as Marketing Director and then Brand Director delivering the brand strategy, marketing, sales and guest experience. In May 2015 we announced the launch of Another Place, a collection of hotels, independent of Watergate Bay, but calling on the same distinct approach to hospitality. Our aim is to create a collection of lifestyle hotels in truly inspiring locations, our first, Another Place, The Lake - on the shores of Ullswater in the Lake District - opened in August 2017. I was also a member of the team that founded the social enterprise restaurant, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall, at Watergate Bay. Until it’s closure in December 2019 I was a trustee of the Cornwall Food Foundation, the charity that owned the restaurant and delivered the training programme and a non-executive director of the restaurant.
