Star chef Angela Hartnett is appointed to the board of Lime Wood Group and Home Grown Hotels (The Pig brand), as a company director.
Robin Hutson, group chairman and CEO, says: “’We have been working with Angela since the launch of the flagship restaurant Hartnett Holder & Co at Lime Wood in early 2012.
“During this period Angela has become a very important member of the senior team, her contribution to the restaurant operation has been considerable and her style is a great fit for us.
“Apart from those attributes she is quite simply the nicest person to work with and she brings that vital female perspective to a male dominated board.
“ We wanted to recognise her contribution to date and cement the relationship for the future with a seat on both boards’. The appointments come along with a new three-year contract for her continued involvement in Hartnett Holder & Co.”
?Hartnett comments: “I love working with Luke Holder and the whole Lime Wood team.
“Having never been involved in a country hotel it has been a fascinating experience for me and a good contrast from my London restaurants.
“I am both thrilled and honoured that Robin wanted me to join the boards of both hotel groups and look forward with great excitement to the years ahead.”
