Lawrence Santi

Founder Director

Lawrence was born into the hospitality industry. His parents are career restaurateurs, whilst his grandfather owned and operated two of London’s most popular nightclubs in the 70s - the River Club in Piccadilly and Talk of the Town in Leicester Square (now the Hippodrome).

He has a wide range of experience in the sector, having managed, owned, operated and sold numerous restaurants, pubs, hotels and nightclubs.

Lawrence has built and developed small to medium-sized multi site managed estates over his career. He is the CEO and founder of Marylebone Leisure Group. He is also Director of Marmalade Pub Company.

Both his privately-owned estate and his joint venture partnership with Enterprise Inns have grown from strength to strength during his stewardship and continues to beat industry growth and profitability rates year-on-year.
