Robin Hutson, Chairman and CEO of Lime Wood Group Ltd and Home Grown Hotels Ltd (The Pig hotels) is delighted to announce the appointment of Angela Hartnett MBE as a company director to the boards of both companies.
He said 'We have been working with Angela since the launch of the flagship restaurant Hartnett Holder & Co at Lime Wood in early 2012. During this period Angela has become a very important member of the senior team, her contribution to the restaurant operation has been considerable and her style is a great fit for us. Apart from those attributes she is quite simply the nicest person to work with and she brings that extra perspective to the male dominated board! Angela exudes all that encompasses Lime Wood and THE PIG, with an easy going approach to work which is complimented with a firm grasp on attention to detail. Her Italian heritage brings with her a strong sense of family importance which transcends into the kitchen and beyond. We wanted to recognise her contribution to date and cement the relationship for the future with a seat on both boards'. The appointments come along with a new 3 year contract for her continued involvement with Hartnett Holder & Co
Angela commented 'I love working with Luke Holder and the whole Lime Wood team, having never been involved with a country hotel it has been fascinating for me and a good contrast to my London restaurants. I am both thrilled and honoured Robin wanted me to join the boards of both hotel groups and look forward with great excitement to the years ahead'
