The exceptional people behind Benson
James is a Brit by birth but don't hold that against him! Following a career in advertising in London, James left the UK in the early 2000s, arrived in Johannesburg and founded The Peech Hotel, today one of the city’s leading boutique hotels. One day he sat down and thought how he could have his hotel run better. Benson was born!
