Homegrown business Gates Hospitality has expanded its senior management team with the promotion of Nadia Werner, who will take on the role of director of business development starting March 1.
The culinary team has also promoted Torman Hamouda to head chef at Verve Bar & Brasserie following three years as sous chef at folly by Nick & Scott.
“At Gates Hospitality we truly understand the need to develop our staff as they’re our long-term assets – our #LocalHeroes. Nadia has been with the business for over 18 months now and has consistently delivered above and beyond so the progression to our group Director of Business Development was a natural decision,” says Naim Maadad, CEO, Gates Hospitality.
He adds: “We’ve also added an exceptionally strong player to our culinary team who is expert in his field. Chef Torman has been with us for six years and it always gives me great pleasure to see the team develop and grow into new roles. He’s a brilliant chef and deserves to be recognised for his talent and hard work.”
