AFTER two decades working in some of the most exotic locations in the world, the job of deputy general manager at Ledsham’s luxury Inglewood Manor Hotel has enabled 43-year-old David Beaufort to return to his native Wirral.
The Wallasey lad who began his hotel and catering career at Thornton Hall in the early 80s before taking a job as a trainee chef on the QE2, went on to hold positions at hotels in Bermuda, Dubai and Australia before finally heading home.
David said: “Although I’ve been home to Wallasey a number of times over the years, my career took me some astonishing places and I did not consider coming back until my last job in Perth, Australia.
“However, I decided that if I was to come home I would first need to find a position at the right calibre of hotel. I did my research, found Inglewood on the net and was immediately impressed. I decided to apply.”
David has worked alongside celebrity chefs such as Kevin Woodford at restaurants in London and the Isle of Man and experienced the luxury standards of internationally renowned hotels across the world.
General manager Fiona Creed said: “David’s vast experience in the industry is more than welcome here at Inglewood where we strive to give our guests the very best quality of service possible. I’m very pleased to have him as my deputy.”
