Account Director

I started my career as a KP and straight away I knew hospitality was the one. After 14 years in central London ops, recruitment is where I found my true passion – supporting and guiding the best businesses and candidates in our wonderful industry. I spent the last two years as a Consultant for a well known restaurant group, building the teams in existing sites as well as their new openings. I specialise in both BOH and FOH recruitment for the premium and super premium sectors.  

Troika have always been the best. From the way they helped and guided me as a candidate, to how they delivered for me as a client in my Operations Director days. I am so proud to be a Troika.
