Now in her 14th year at the iconic Brighton hotel, Andi is responsible for driving the hotel’s positive people culture and is at the forefront of developing employee engagement and retention initiatives. From progressing the hotel’s future leaders through academy training programmes to implementing company perk platforms, Andi is passionate about creating an environment for continual development and recognition among The Grand team.
