Liam Finnegan has been appointed the group executive chef of the Michael Caines Collection.
He will take charge of Lympstone Manor, the Cove at Maenporth, and two new projects in Porthleven and Exmouth.
Finnegan worked at Gidleigh Park in Devon before working for eight years as the head chef of the Castle hotel in Taunton, Somerset.
He told The Caterer: “Coming back to work for Michael and with the team is very exciting. I have great memories from my formative years at Gidleigh Park 14 years ago!
“It’s a testament to the company to see so many familiar faces still working for Michael. I have been watching the brand grow from afar with admiration and I’m really excited about the appointment.”
