The Seven Sins of Yossi Eliyahoo

Co-founder, The Entourage Group
Yossi Eliyahoo
Yossi Eliyahoo, a married father of four, was born and raised in Tel Aviv. He started his hospitality career there as a teenager, working his way up in kitchen, bar and restaurant management. “It’s like conducting an orchestra. It was the buzz, the action and the diversity of the people that made me fall in love with hospitality.”

Following this, he decided to take matters into his own hands, opening various clubs, coffee bars and restaurants in Tel Aviv. He was later asked by an international hotel investor to move to London to create and develop several new restaurant concepts in the UK.

These concepts were met with praise and saw him recognised as a key player in the hospitality industry, but also led to him meeting his wife and future CEO of the company, Stephanie Pearson.
London was also where he met hotel entrepreneur, Liran Wizman, who asked him to start a joint venture in Amsterdam.

He immediately fell in love with the city and saw true potential in the partnership. Liran then became his business partner in every new venture, and also his best friend. This was the beginning of The Entourage Group.
