Kirsty Burton joined the Gecko Hospitality team in 2017. Her parents worked in the hospitality field since she was a child, so it was a natural progression to follow them into the industry. Kirsty started with her very first job at the age of 16 at a local burger restaurant and remained in the restaurant and bar industry for several years. After changing direction and moving into retail, it didn’t take long to get back behind the bar. Kirsty took on a Trainee Manager role and soon after learning the ropes, was promoted to manage the kitchen, as well as run the busy nightclub bar in the evenings.
After training, Kirsty moved into Relief Management and traveled to other locations to manage other pubs, restaurants and nightclubs. Kirsty has been able to use her experiences and talents to take on roles in staff recruitment and development within various industries, including hospitality, over the past several years.
In her spare time, she loves to travel, try new things, taste new foods and embrace new cultures. She also makes jewelry and has a passion for motorcycling. Kirsty lives with her husband, Anthony, in Bucks County - with Bubba the cat.
