Kirsty Stanley-Hughes

KSH Managing Director

Kirsty has spent more than two decades working within the food, beverage and hospitality industries, and in that time has worked extensively with, and then represented, some of the world’s most celebrated Michelin-starred chefs.

Kirsty began her professional career within LVMH’s champagne and spirits brand division, Moët Hennessy UK.  As the most senior member of the events team, Kirsty was responsible for curating a significant number of prestigious social events from inception to fruition, including the Hennessy Gold Cup at Newbury Racecourse and the Veuve Clicquot British Open Championship Polo Gold Cup.

Kirsty went on to study for her Wine & Spirit Education Trust wine exams, which led to her becoming a judge for the annual International Wine Challenge.  She continued to work particularly closely with  Dom Pérignon, implementing a chef ambassador program and regularly inviting some of the UK’s finest chefs to spend three days in Epernay, Champagne, where they would work with the Cellar Master to create dishes that paired with a significant number of very different vintages. As a seasoned professional, Kirsty was solely responsible for identifying and engaging some of the best chefs in the country to work with her on product and new vintage launches for MHUK’s other brands including Krug, Moët & Chandon, Glenmorangie, Belvedere and Cloudy Bay.  She continues to this day to consult for Moët Hennessy UK on their events when requiring award-winning chefs.

Building on her expertise in the luxury brands market and on her relationships with the chefs she had worked so closely with for over a decade, Kirsty started up her own agency representing some of the world’s most iconic Michelin-starred chefs.  She brings to her clients the magical combination of gastronomic mastery, innovation and artistry, blended with seamless organisational expertise. Ten years on, KSH Management Ltd stands at the forefront of culinary excellence and continues to seek out new opportunities for chefs and clients alike.
