The magnificent seven
New members elected to CESA Council
At the CESA AGM, held during the Conference last week, new members were elected to the Council. CESA is the voice of the catering equipment industry and the Council plays an active role in shaping legislation and implementing initiatives within the industry.
“We welcome these new members and look forward to their input on future CESA projects,” says Glenn Roberts, chair of CESA. “We had a lot of interest in the Council this year and some very worthy applications. I’d like to congratulate all those who were successful in getting elected, offer commiserations to those who didn’t make the Council this time and urge them to try again next year. We will be encouraging all those who stood to get engaged in CESA work, as their skills and experience are key to the development of the association.”
Three of the seven are re-elected members. They are: Stephen Goodliff, Managing Director, Contacto; David Parsons, Financial Director, Classeq; and Stephen Hobbs, Managing Director, Grande Cuisine. The four new members are: Simon Lohse, Managing Director, Rational UK Ltd; Paul Anderson, Managing Director, Meiko UK Ltd; Lawrence Hughes, Sales and Marketing Director, Falcon Foodservice Equipment; and Iain Munro, Managing Director, Hobart UK Ltd.
