The catering equipment division of Stevenage-based Gratte Brothers has snapped up Stephen Ryan as its new area sales manager.
The firm has over 50 years of experience and a turnover in excess of £13m. It designs, supplies, installs and maintains commercial catering facilities.
Ryan joins from Northampton-headquartered Dine By Design, where he has been kitchen development manager since August 2013.
There he oversaw a range of kitchen design and installation projects, including for Coca-Cola Enterprises’ Milton Keynes technical and servicing centre (which features in the latest issue of Catering Insight here), The Silk Mill museum in Derby, and the Walnuts School in Milton Keynes.
Ryan can draw upon his 5 years of chef experience to ensure kitchens are designed and outfitted suitably.
