David Hutchinson – Managing Director of ATS Group.

After completing my studies at the then EISS (Educational Institute for Service Studies) which is now known as Stenden South Africa, my lecturer Simon Wright arranged that I complete my internship at The Edward Hotel in Port Elizabeth. I was recruited as a Duty Manager, lucky for me, I had worked throughout my studies in the evenings and holidays to fund my degree therefore Stenden acknowledged this and shortened my internship to three months. Once these were completed I was permanently recruited to Food & Beverage Manager and Deputy General Manager of the hotel. This was quite a daunting task to be running such a large hotel, but the times were good and we all had a lot of fun. For the full story click here.
