Have you ever wondered who is behind the amazing No.10 Preston Hotel?
This week we will be introducing each of the members of the team that work so hard to make No.10 Preston the special place it is. Below you’ll see some answers to a list of questions asked of each team member.
This week we meet Richard Fontana:
Richard is the trainee General Manager at No.10 Preston, he is being trained by Ross Taylor so he is ready to run his own Winckley Square Hotel once it opens later this year. Richard’s day to day role is back of house, making sure guests are booked in ok, all our software is running correctly, that all bills both in and out are paid on time and that the rest of the team is paid! Richard also helps Ross with the front of house when needed, meeting guests, checking them in and checking them out.
He is a truly sincere person and a whiz with numbers and spread sheets. Richard loves analyzing everything from where our guests discover us to how we can personalise and improve each guests experience. Richard is a true believer in constant improvement in everything he does and it shows in his work.
Richard is currently single and looking to treat a lovely lady, so if you know anyone please let us know! Did we mention Richard is Italian?
