"Sam was a fantastic Head of Hospitality at Redemption Roasters. He helped us for nearly three years and he was a real pleasure to work with. During that time, Sam's hands-on approach and commitment to excellence took us to the next level. His commercial and impact results were equally impressive. Sam's integrity, reliability, and positive attitude set a high standard for our Hospitality department and the wider team. I am confident that his unique blend of skills would make a valuable contribution anywhere. I would work with him again any day."
