Adam Handling group names new executive director

Nicola Gartenberg, previously operations director at the Adam Handling Restaurant Group (AHRG), has been promoted as the group's executive director and has been appointed to the board.

Gartenberg joined AHRG four years ago, overseeing the openings of most of the groups portfolio, and has been instrumental in helping the company pivot towards its home delivery option (Hame) during lockdown. 

“We have an exciting rollout plan for the group, triggered by the success of Hame, which is going to be steered by Nicola in her new role," says Handling. "And whilst I’m still very much involved in the overall development of the group, as its owner, lockdown has helped me to realise how much I’ve missed being in the kitchen. 

"I’m going to be spending more time in Frog by Adam Handling, and am determined not to miss out on a Michelin star in 2022. Nicola brings an abundance of professionalism and determination, and everyone at AHRG congratulates Nicola for her outstanding dedication to the success of the group.”
