Andrew Bell

Centre Manager

Andrew studied hospitality locally at Colchester Institute. After several international internships, Andrew continued working in hotels, big and small for over 12 years culminating with his most recent appointments with Cambridge University and what was the Granta Conference Centre… 

There is a common thread; giving him the opportunity to help and support people, from large international conferences to individual coaching, creating both the physical and personal environments to grow and achieve. It’s no surprise the Epicentre caught his eye to continue this passion in a new and exciting setting, plus he is local to the centre so looking forward to short commute to work!

Andrew is a keen runner, previous Chairman of Haverhill running club and run coach as well, driven from a love of triathlons.
