Daniele Quattromini, the 2015 Gold Service Scholarship winner and manager of the Lusso-operated Club Lounge 39 in One Canada Square, is to leave his role and join Cliveden House as restaurant manager.
Quattromini, who won an Acorn Award in 2015, worked at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons and Chewton Glen Hotel & Spa during his formative years before moving into foodservice to work with CH&Co Group, specifically Lusso Catering, in 2013.
Commenting on his new role, Quattromini told The Caterer: "I am delighted to be taking on the role of restaurant manager at restaurant Andre Garrett, and I am excited to join the team at one of the UK's most prestigious country house hotels. It's the challenge I was searching for."
He will take up his new role at Cliveden House in September.
A graduate of the hospitality management degree course at Bournemouth University, Quattromini, is a proud and visible ambassador for front of house.
Speaking at the spring Foodservice Forum, he told delegates: "There isn't enough shouting about this side of hospitality. We have to make the industry more attractive to young people. Television shows make it attractive to be a chef, but I would like to see more focus on front of house.
"Winning the Gold Service Scholarship was the proudest moment of my career. Industry role models are happy to find time for me. It's important for the industry to remember knowledge transfer can work both ways as young people can bring in new insights."
Andrew Stembridge, managing director of Chewton Glen and Cliveden House, told The Caterer: "We are delighted to have the opportunity to welcome Daniele back into the family, having followed his career with interest since he worked with us at Chewton Glen as a student. Cliveden is currently on the most wonderful journey and I know that Daniele will be an incredibly useful addition to the management team, and someone who will undoubtedly play an important role in our quest to put the house back on the map."
Meanwhile, last month, James Fleming, the winner of the Gold Service Scholarship in 2014, moved to the Beaumont hotel, London, as reception supervisor from the same role at the Berkeley hotel.
Fleming was chef de rang at Belmond Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons at the time of his success in the scholarship, moving soon after to the Berkeley, initially as guest relations executive. He is currently undertaking part-time study on the one-year Master Innholders Aspiring Leaders Diploma.
