Leading Hospitality Training Company Appoints New CEO

Frazer has been Acting CEO at the Staffordshire-based business for the last year since founder David Hawbrook suffered a stroke.

Mr Hawbrook, who established abv Training in September 2001, specialising in the training and development of people in the hospitality industry, died four months ago.

His widow, Cathryn, a director of the company, said she is proud of her late husband’s legacy and she is confident Frazer can lead the business towards a bright future.

She said: “For the past 12 months Frazer Grant has been the Acting CEO of abv Training Ltd. These were big shoes to step into but step into them he certainly has.

“Frazer brings a wealth of experience from the hospitality industry and will be the face of abv going forward.

“Frazer has the full support and trust of the Hawbrook family to take the company onwards and upwards.”

Frazer Grant started working in the licensed and hospitality trade 22 years ago. He met David Hawbrook in 2005 and quickly became a widely respected and acclaimed trainer with abv Training.

He said: “I am delighted to take over as CEO and I am determined to build on the achievements of my friend and mentor, David Hawbrook, who had such a great passion for hospitality and service.

“We continue to train individuals, groups and organisations throughout the UK and will be delivering some exciting new courses in the coming year.”
