As many of you are aware here at TerraVina, we are very proud of Gerard and all of his achievements. The “icing on the cake” after a fantastic win in 2010 was his award of an OBE in 2011, for Services to Hospitality. Despite the gloomy start to 2012, (why is January such a horrible month?) GB has done it again and scored another fantastic achievement… this time a full page in the Wall Street Journal.
Without wanting to boast, we have been very fortunate to have been written about in many National newspapers and some International ones too. Hotel du Vin was widely reported on, Hotel TerraVina has been written about hugely too and almost every newspaper, with the exception of the News of the World has included either the hotel or Gerard within their pages, (I am relieved he was never front page of the News of the World that’s for sure!), but to be written about in the Wall Street Journal really is rather special.
Will Lyons, the journalist who wrote the piece is a very incisive man… he got GB completely and the article reads very well and you can just imagine Gerard saying exactly the words that have been written , in exactly the manner that they flow from the page… thus GB has managed to do it again, make us all still more proud of him, his achievements and his inspiring determination….. Very well done on such a great feature, in such a special publication.
Unfortunately, I am not able to include a link, as copyright laws are very strict, but for anyone wanting to read the feature, it was in Friday 10th Feb edition and is available to view freely on Wall Street Journals’ own website, or via numerous mentions on Twitter.
Till next week
