Meraki Hospitality Group is built on family values, rooted by founders to the brother and sisterhoods that form our teams. We like to laugh, we don’t always take ourselves so seriously but when there’s hard work to be done, it’s all hands on deck.


Operation Manager,

bedu Hong Kong

The British Gent from Kent, Ben Hatfield joins Meraki Hospitality as a seasoned F&B pro with experience from across the globe including Australia, London, and Hong Kong. From Michelin starred fine dining to more casual concepts, he joins Meraki Family as Operations Manager of BEDU with a sharp nose for wine, an impressive sock collection perfectly paired to bold printed shirts. This local ramen junkie can be found off-duty crushing bowls of ramen or breaking a sweat at House of Fitness.​ 

"Each day I come to work I want to maximise the guest experience, whilst also ensuring our staff have fun at work. Our teams are constantly looking at ways to improve our restaurants & ourselves, little by little, day by day."

Joe joined us in 2017 as Commis chef. Our local treasure, his background and obsession with Japanese cuisine has seen his role develop to contribute more creatively as part of the senior chef team, now Sous Chef at UMA NOTA Hong Kong. If he isn't behind the pass, you'll find him at the local beaches catching waves or in Bali seeking swells.


"It's rare to find a kitchen team that has a harmonious balance, day-in, day-out I enjoy coming to work, to laugh, and get creative."

Janina joined us in 2017 as a manager in training at UMA NOTA. She’s fast tracked through her roles as Assistant Manager and Operations Manager, and today leads the service team at JALAN living up to stereotype of German efficiency and precision. During her free time, you'll find her checking her Insta for new photos of cute hippos.


"For me, Meraki stands for making a change. I feel very fortunate to make my first career steps in an environment that supports my ambitions and career goals and I am excited to be part of this growing success story.”
