Gemma Povey

Managing Director

Gemma has extensive knowledge of the Hospitality industry, with her main strengths being HR, Finance, and the appointment of Senior Executives/ Management across different industry sectors. She is a strong believer in people buy people, so to ensure we recruit the right person it is essential that we first understand the full needs of our clients along with capturing the true essence of their company culture, as on occasion, a candidate’s personality and drive can sometimes outweigh the desired skillset.
