For the first time ever, this year a Highly Commended stamp was given out for the Shining Star Award at last night’s Boutique Hotelier Personal Service Star Awards.
The winner of the Highly Commended accolade was Afees Bello from The Beaumont.
Afees Bello is the back of house Manager at The Beaumont. He joined Corbin & King in 2012 at the age of 21 as Assistant Back of House Manager, and his unwavering positive attitude, his drive to progress and his hunger to learn meant that he had quickly surpassed his own line manager’s abilities.
Within 14 months of joining, Afees was named Back of House Manager, with a team of 40 personnel, holding full P&L accountability for a monthly budget of £85,000 for one of the biggest operations within Corbin & King.
Boutique Hotelier editor, Zoe Monk, presented Hollywood with his award.
