When did you join Nelson Hotels?
I started in 2007 and progressed to Bar Manager of Nelson’s Bar at the Grosvenor Pulford Hotel & Spa. I was very keen to progress within the company and so I was delighted when an opportunity opened up for General Manager at The Pheasant in February 2012.
Other than your promotion, what drew you to this new position at The Pheasant Inn?
During my time working at the Grosvenor Pulford, The Pheasant was always a favourite of mine. It is such a stunning venue; unique and in the most beautiful of locations. It’s a very special place that I knew I would feel proud to work at and help make a success of. It was a fantastic opportunity for me as well as a challenge in my career.
Where did you grow up?
The vibrant city of Bucharest, Romania
What is your dream job?
As a youngster I always wanted to be a pilot. I’d love to take some flying lessons!
What do you enjoy most about your job?
Most of all I enjoy meeting the customers and ensuring they have a fantastic time at this lovely 5 star property, and also the spectacular views are a nice perk too!
What do you do in your free time?
I try to spend as much of it as possible with my children. My wife is a music teacher so we are currently encouraging the children to pick up and try different instruments. They seem to be taking after their mother rather than me in that respect!
