Boasting an extensive record in the hospitality sector Clark, formerly managing director of CAU, will now be responsible for the day to day operations of the Harbour Hotels Group, focusing particularly on its food and beverage concepts.
Prior to CAU, Clark progressed from restaurant manager to operations director of the Elysium Group, gaining significant experience in managing expanding groups and ensuring high levels of brand and product consistency.
