2019 has marked a year of ‘considerable growth’ at Lympstone Manor in Devon and prompted a management restructure following the departure of general manager Scott Andrews.
Andrews left the hotel, which is owned and operated by chef Michael Caines, in October after three years of service and as a result, Anca Paraschiv has been promoted from her position as assistant general manager to fill the role.
She has been at Lympstone Manor since 2017, joining after four years spent working for Sat Bains at his Restaurant with Rooms in Nottingham.
The year of growth has also resulted in a management restructure and several other promotions and developments within the team.
This will help to ‘pave the way’ for future developments planned for 2020, which are due to be ‘revealed in the new year’.
Jordan Denning, former senior sous chef, has been promoted head chef at Lympstone Manor, having worked with Michael for over nine years and being part of the opening team in 2017.
Steve Garrod re-joins the team as assistant general manager, while Emma Bowen has been promoted to the newly-created role of operations manager.
Paying tribute to these promotions Caines said: “Our business is all about people and seeing these young staff develop into these roles over the past two and half years fills me with pride. As a team we continue to work together to deliver exceptional service to all our guests, whilst promoting a culture that nurtures talent and develops their skills.”
