Eamonn Cole Head of Operations

It is a huge privilege for me to be able to work for Quiet Company as it is a ‘values-driven’ organisation that genuinely puts people and the planet first. I have worked my entire career in hospitality and I am so delighted to now be able to support the incredible work undertaken by Quakers around the globe. London is an amazing city where I have the opportunity to attend so many wonderful attractions and events, especially the theatre, music concerts, and sporting events.

Katie Stroud Business Development & Revenue Manager

Working for Friends House is such a privilege and I am delighted to work for an organisation that puts their core values first, especially their sustainability commitments, ahead of profit. I bring 12 years of experience in the hospitality industry to the role, having worked in venues such as the Museum of London, Tower Bridge and Prince Philip House. I love food and wine and if I’m not trying a new restaurant then you can find me cooking or devouring a new recipe book.
