Anthony, our General Manager, is from Lyon in France. His interest in the industry began when he lived as a young child in the Sofitel Hotel in Lyon where his dad worked. Anthony says ‘My dad has always been my mentor and source of inspiration’.
He studied the hospitality industry at École Hotelière Savoie Léman in France and when he was 18 years old, Anthony took on his first role in the industry as a luggage porter during weekends and holidays.
When Anthony moved to London, he started at the Sofitel in St James, and then Aqua Shard which were both very important aspects of his career journey. He then moved to the Savoy Grill as Chef de Rang - ‘coming back as General Manager is a big achievement, it means a lot to me’.
Anthony is passionate about hospitality because he loves delivering a memorable experience. To do this ‘you need to have humour and be comedian and have the power to make people happy, it is a remarkable industry and privilege to work in stunning establishment’.
Outside of work, he loves cooking, playing sport, and visiting hotel bars and restaurants to see what experiences other people are providing. One of the most memorable trips he took was to Mumbai in India, where Anthony tried the most flavourful cuisine.
