Angus Spurr has been appointed GM of Park Inn by Radisson Newlands, in Cape Town. Spurr’s career, which spans over 19 years, encompasses key roles across various levels, from reservations agent and marketing co-ordinator, with the bulk of his career dedicated to the food and beverage sector. In more recent years, he focused on operations management where he gained a deeper understanding of another crucial element in hospitality, and this paved the way and cemented him in his new role as GM at Park Inn by Radisson Newlands.
“I’m driven by the energy of the industry and the fact that no day is ever the same. My passion for continuous learning is better off constantly dabbling in various operational arenas within the hotel – I’m a firm believer that we can learn and grow together,” he said.
Spurr attributes his passion for the food and beverage sector to his love of cooking, experimenting with flavours as well as his flair for food and wine pairing. He will be found throughout the hotel, fulfilling duties outside his role as gm. He is often in the kitchen chatting with the chef, in the restaurant talking about wines or walking the building with the maintenance manager discussing projects.
