Andrew Stembridge is Managing Director of Chewton Glen and in February 2012 he also became Managing Director of Cliveden. He is the driving force behind an ambitious three year project, which will see the next chapter in this iconic hotel’s history unfold.
Graduating from the University of Strathclyde, Glasgow with joint honours in Hotel Management & Tourism he has more recently, courtesy of MI scholarships, attended the GMP at Cornell University and BLP at Cranfield University.
