The third annual Housekeeper of the Year award, sponsored by Northmace & Hendon, recognises outstanding commitment and performance, identifying a housekeeper who goes above and beyond the call of duty.
Kit received her award at a lunch held at the Michelin-starred Galvin at Windows at the London Hilton Park Lane yesterday (30 March) after judges praised her outstanding housekeeping standards as well as her attention to detail, her pride in her work and her dedicated commitment to her team.
Kit joined the Egerton House hotel in 2001 and worked her way up to become executive housekeeper in 2008. She manages a team of nine housekeepers at the property, taking responsibility for all aspects of room preparation and training of her team.
Rudi Plaut chairman of Northmace & Hendon, said: "Like all good housekeepers, it is the leadership that Kit provides for her team at the Egerton House hotel, including their training and development that produces such outstanding results.
"Of course a part of that leadership is the example which she sets by the combination of her personal commitment and development."
