First Choice Group director John Whitehouse has been appointed as vice-chairman of CESA Council, and will graduate to chairman in 2 years.
The appointment was made during the Catering Equipment Suppliers Association’s Annual General Meeting.
“This is a real honour for me and a position I am very proud to take,” Whitehouse said.
“The challenges and opportunities that exist within catering are helping the industry grow at a rate faster than it has ever seen.
“It is important that the commitment of CESA in supporting suppliers, investors and traders remains a force for progressive, positive change.”
Incoming CESA chairman, Glenn Roberts, lauded Whitehouse’s appointment: “It is an honour to have John Whitehouse elected as vice-chair as he is recognised as a loyal member of our industry, someone who has made a significant contribution to catering and is both liked and respected by his colleagues, members of the association and the industry as a whole,” he said.
