Profiles Hands-on hotelier with cheery face takes a bowJonathan Seex, the director of Business Development at Tamarind Group. Chris and Dunford established the Tamarind Group in 1977, expanding with another Tamarind restaurant, this time in Nairobi’s central business district. The group now owns and operate brands including the Tamarind and Carnivore, Tamarind Tree Hotel, Tamarind Dhows, Tamambo, Tamarind Village, Dorman’s Coffee Ltd and Golden Key Casino.
