PH London Welcomes New AGM!
It gives me great pleasure to announce that Scott Montillet, the AGM from Earl of Sandwich Disneyland Paris will be joining us as AGM of Planet Hollywood London week commencing 21st March.
Scott has worked for the company since summer 2006 whilst a student at university in Paris. He began life as a server at Planet Hollywood Disneyland Paris before moving into management for the opening of Earl of Sandwich DLP in 2011.
He has quickly developed into a key player within the team which lead to a promotion to AGM at the beginning of 2014.
He has had a big impact developing the business positively in various different aspects over the last couple of years and also assisted with the opening of Earl of Sandwich in Bluewater at the end of last year.
Scott’s drive, enthusiasm and willingness to learn will be a great assistance to Peter, the team and a strong asset to our day to day business.
Please join us in welcoming Scott on board and help him to settle quickly in to his new role.
