Meet Matthew, an ex-chef who now leads the team as Hotel Operations Manager at London – Greenwich. Read the full story below.
Tell us a bit about yourself and your position?
I started my career in hospitality by studying Professional Cookery. This allowed me to work in a 2AA rosette kitchen before deciding to move to Front of House, where I started as a part-time Night Team Member and worked my way up to my current position as HOM of Greenwich. In my spare time, I am a big sports fan. I enjoy football (Arsenal Fan!), cricket, F1 and boxing, along with cycling and gaming. I am originally from Birmingham, but moved to Southampton in 2016 for career development, followed by London in 2021.
Choose a highlight of working at Atlas so far?
So far, the great morale amongst the team. Feels as though it’s one big team, with a lot of support and all wanting to succeed.
If you could live in any country, where and why?
New Zealand, Such a beautiful country with a lot of nature to explore and relax in but also some big cities for career opportunities.
If you could stay in any of our hotels, which one would it be?
HIE Edinburgh Leith Waterfront – The chance to explore Edinburgh more would be great.
What’s one thing you did recently you are proud of?
Charity Bike ride around London for 4Louis, visited 13 hotels and cycled 54 miles. Raised over £1K between 5 of us.
What motivates you?
This has changed over my career. As a Team Member, it was very much about pushing myself to do better and progress. Now, it’s about mentoring and coaching others to help them reach their full potential.
