Speaker profile

Andrew Morrow
Director of Operations
The Firmament

Andrew Morrow, having recently returned to the UAE after a few years in his native Australia, heads up The Firmaments operations and global expansion on all matters relating to the operations and concept development.

Andrew, a recognised chef with over eighteen years’ experience in the kitchen, and a further twelve in operations and concept development across Australia, Canada, Europe, and the Middle East brings a wealth of knowledge and determination to his role with the Firmament.

Andrew’s growth away from the Kitchen began at Canada’s iconic Mission Hill Family Estate where he earned his sommeliers certification and drove the wineries summer guest experience program. Arriving in the Middle East to Abu Dhabi’s Emirates Palace hotel, it was not long before he branched out with his business partners to build Star Corporation, a concept creation and restaurant management group responsible for Leopold’s of London, Smoking Doll and Wildfire NY.

Before departing the UAE for his homeland in 2018, Andrew had a two-year tenure with Roya International as General Manager of Operations and Development where he spent time on the advisory board of the Global Restaurant Investment forum and other regional conferences.

Andrew returns happily to the middle east to join the Firmament for their new venture in Dubai Marina and 2022 launch of The London Project’s flagship venue in canary Wharf, London and potentially more globally in the next few years.
