“I can’t begin to thank those who have been with me on this journey; from those who started with me at the beginning of Ennismore working in a broom cupboard at The Hoxton, Shoreditch, to those who have joined since and passionately continue our mission to build brands rooted in community – I share this recognition with each of them.
“Finally, I’d like to thank my family, especially my wife Eiesha, who has been by my side throughout; I couldn’t do what I do without her.”
Pasricha founded Ennismore in 2011 and under his leadership the business saw exponential growth, including the global expansion of The Hoxton across Europe and the US; the reinvention of Gleneagles, the iconic glorious playground in the Scottish Highlands, and the creation of Working From_ a shared community workspace.
