Meet The Team
Anton has almost 20 years experience in customer led operations across the IT and hospitality sectors. Anton was born and brought up in Cambridge and has an in-depth knowledge and enthusiasm of the Historic city of Cambridge and what it has to offer. When he is not working Anton loves fast cars and also antiques and Fine Arts and can often be found sneaking off to London and the Fine Arts Auctions!
Darren brings with him over 10 years of experience in the hotel industry, with his last post as the Operations Manager at the prestigious Varsity Hotel. With innovation, organisation and customer service at his core, Darren likes nothing better than enhancing the Signet customer experience and refining our work methodologies to operate ever more efficiently. When not at work Darren likes to roam the globe and has already lived and worked in Canada for a year which he loved – he also tells me Asia is next on his list to visit. One of his other loves is chocolate (he’s a complete chocoholic) so please don’t leave your chocolates anywhere near him!
Adrian is our Head Housekeeper and comes complete with a Masters in Business Administration and he scored 86.4%. Crikey! Before he joined Signet Adrian managed the housekeeping team at the 150 bedroom Marriott hotel in Huntingdon and then our very own Moller Institute/hotel in Cambridge with 92 bedrooms. As a result he brings a terrific depth and breadth of experience all gained at a very high level. When not working Adrian likes to read some pretty high brow material, notably on clinical psychology and most recently on how to rewire the brain, which sounds dangerous to me. Please don’t try this at home folks. Little known fact is that he is also a demon ice-skater which comes from living in Canada for 14 years he says. Ice hockey is their national sport after all.
Libby comes to us with a wealth of housekeeping experience at management level behind her, stretching all the way from sunny Old blighty to the distinctly more sunny Gold cost in Australia and then back again. Libby is seriously hot on the apartment detail which is this business is terrific news – in fact some say she doesn’t really have eyes but tiny little microscopes – you’ve been warned. Libby is another one with the travel bug flowing through her veins and has been to… wait for it… 18 different countries and 4 continents! Of all those Thailand was her favourite with its warm seas and beaches. When at home Libby also likes to enjoy family time watching an action or thriller movie on the sofa. Favourite film Iron Man. Little known fact: she has set our sites on learning another language – could it be Thai?
Peggy is our lovely super friendly office dog. Originally from Romania she was born on the street in a shivering minus 20 degrees. A rescue charity bought her over here to England and now she lives a good life with us. Being a beautiful mongrel we wondered what breeds she was and so we decided to do a DNA test. The results were surprising to say the least. She is 24% Miniature Dachshund and 12% Pekinese – what we want to know is where did those long legs came from!
May has a wealth of experience of managing schedules and teams in the busy world of television and radio. Overseeing the overall operational side to Signet, she ensures our high company standards are consistently met and exceeded. May is an avid reader and is part of a local book club. She also loves keeping fit and dives for the Cambridge diving club and has recently started to do ice-skating. A mom of two, May successfully manages to juggle her many tasks!
Vilette has been in the hospitality line for over 20 years. She worked with Emirates airlines when starting out and travelled far and wide and raising a family while living around the world. Cambridge has always been home, which she knows very well. Vilette has travelled and lived as far to the West in New Orleans and Vancouver, and to the East in Hongkong and Bali, besides most of the Middle Eastern countries and Asia. She enjoys meeting and greeting guests and welcoming them after their long journeys. In her free time Vilette loves going to the cinema, music concerts and plays. Besides her love for cooking which pleases her family, her love for photography knows no bounds.
Jose is an accomplished gardener and grows Pak choy, sweetcorn and strawberries amongst others and also enjoys tending to his many roses. When he is not in the garden he is an avid ‘all action’ film devotee with, Fast and furious, Die Hard and Bad Boy amongst them – if the world needs saving Jose could well be your man! Jose has got the travelling bug and had holidayed in some pretty far-flung places including New York, Tokyo and even went all the way to Disney land in Singapore with his two grown-up children – what a trip.
Sean comes to us with terrific housekeeping experience most notably as team leader for the Britannia Inn at RAF Alconbury no less – so we all need to pay attention, look smart and salute when he comes in the room! Sean is a mad sports fan of the football variety and has said Liverpool is his team. Not a bad choice we say, as Liverpool has won six European Cup/Champions League trophies which actually makes them the most successful English team in European football tournament history! Sean also likes his rock punk music and particularly favours Linkin Park and Green Day – pretty cool stuff.
Teo loves relaxing in the great outdoors and must be an incredibly patient lady as she loves fishing! Cambourne just outside Cambridge is apparently the place to be as she frequently pulls out 7 kilo fish which sounds pretty big to me… although we haven’t seen any photographic evidence as yet! When not with her rod and reel Teo likes reading romantic novels and cooking up a storm in the kitchen where she likes things spicy and says her signature dish is Spaghetti Pomodoro – yum! Teo also has a grown up daughter of 21 who she loves to spend relaxing down time with.
