Offering an independent perspective, they bring detailed industry knowledge, expert insights on market trends and access to valuable connections and expertise to every client.
With extensive experience in all areas of hotel operations at world-renowned hotels, Alan and Stefanie are passionate about helping hotel or gastronomy businesses reach their potential.
My career in the hospitality industry spans 25 years and started in my native Scotland. Many years working in London and other parts of England and Wales then followed. I look back particularly fondly on my years spent abroad, and love telling stories about my time in a huge resort in St. Kitts & Nevis, or about the years I spent in Australia working as Director of Food and Beverage at a Sofitel Hotel.
The highlight of my professional career is at the world-renowned Firmdale Hotels where I worked my way up to General Manager in the 5-star market in London.
The hotel businesses I have worked for include Marriott, Accor, Firmdale Hotels and the Leeu Collection. This has seen me involved in project work in the United States, New Zealand, Thailand, South Africa and Italy.
During my operational years, I completed many pre-opening and refurbishment assignments. I have extensive understanding of corporate culture and the eclectic design-led hospitality environment. With an education in accountancy to bring to the table, I provide a well-rounded, full-service approach to my client.
Consultancy was something that we both wanted to explore, however it was in 2018 when we moved our family to Germany that we made the leap.
I love working one to one with my clients to solve problems and develop impactful solutions.
As a trained hotel specialist in the German dual apprenticeship system, I held a number of Front Office roles in Germany before moving to London in 2004.
Since then, my career progressed in the rooms division, ultimately to the role of Director of Rooms Operations spanning two continents, Europe and Australia.
Helping my teams strive for the highest standards and a very personalised customer service, has always been of great importance to me – no matter if a boutique hotel, apartments, resort or corporate hotel, including large properties with diverse and dynamic service needs. I spent the last eight years at a world-renowned icon, the JW Marriott Grosvenor House London, seeing it go through an extensive refurbishment and managing operating procedures, service delivery and training for hundreds of employees.
My career highlights include living in Australia for three years, and being part of the ‘International Olympic Committee Family Hotel’ for the London 2012 Olympics while at Grosvenor House. Operating and welcoming guests in an exclusive hotel environment is what I am really passionate about, and I love working with clients to tailor their service experience.
