Carrie has been a leading figure in the London Hotel market over the last twenty years, from her time with Firmdale Hotels, opening hotels in both London and in New York to her opening of CAW Ventures.
Prior to Firmdale, she owned and operated a number of restaurants, hotels and conference centres in Johannesburg and the Western Cape’s wine lands. Carrie has been voted one of the Top 100 Most Influential People in Hospitality as well as the CATEY Manager of the Year 2009 and Inspirational Mentor of 2015.
