Our team always goes the extra mile in London and Cumbria to deliver great services to customers and Friends.

Timo Eftimov Assistant Service Delivery Manager

I really enjoy working in Friends House because of the great colleagues and teamwork. I have been in the hospitality industry for just over seven years working different customer facing roles in different multinational and independent hotels in London. In my spare time, I really enjoy spending time with my family, traveling and visiting new places.

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.

Cecilia Bouenissa Marketing and Communications Officer

I started working at Friends House in 2015. We've reached great milestones together and faced challenges as a united team. I've learned a lot working with great colleagues, managers, clients and suppliers. It's also nice to work for a company with such strong values and ethos. My background is in marketing and I've worked for an insurance company and tech start-ups in Paris (where I'm from) and London. Outside of work, I like to spend time with my children, cooking and baking together, or going on little adventures to the many parks and city farms of London.
