A graduate of Oxford Brookes University in Hotel Management, Rupert spent 20 years working in luxury hospitality, including management roles with Ritz-Carlton and Four Seasons. In 2002 he joined an established search firm in London and was board director for 8 years before launching Barometa, a specialist recruitment company with an integrated and bespoke video interviewing system.
