Annabel Hawksworth

Agency Principal

How I got here:

My passion for food and travel first took me from a small village in England’s Kent countryside to the ‘big smoke’ to work in London’s top hotels and restaurants. While overseeing events and marketing for Marco Pierre White’s famed group of restaurants I met and married Chef David Hawksworth and moved with him to his native Vancouver in summer 2000. After a seven-year tenure as Communications Director for the Top Table group of restaurants in Vancouver and Whistler, Hawksworth Communications was born – an agency that specializes in representing luxury lifestyle, hospitality and destination brands.

My secret spot in Vancouver:

I always knew I wanted to live by the ocean, I find it therapeutic, but I never imagined it would be in Vancouver. Lorcano beach, when the sun sets behind the mountains and the city rises and sparkles across the bay is just magic – shhhhh!

Favourite quote:

“The greater danger for most of us lies not in setting our aim too high and in falling short; but in setting our aim too low and achieving our mark.”  – Michealangelo

When I’m not working…

You’ll find me on the tennis court, ski slopes and spending time with my husband, our son and two Australian labradoodles, lovely Lola and Milly the menace!
