The foodservice management, training and recruitment consultancy, Alset Partners, has looked back on its first year in business and is preparing for 2019.
Directors Richard Goodchild and Ian Parsons officially established the company on 4 December 2017, and report the firm has quickly grown.
Parsons said: “It’s been such a fantastic journey in our first year of Alset Partners. Richard and I have been completely overwhelmed by the support and feedback that we have received so far.”
Both Parsons and Goodchild were well-known in the industry before making the decision to launch Alset Partners – the pair have built up their knowledge through years of experience within the catering equipment sector, including front-of-house roles, OEM sales and catering design projects.
Parsons added: “Having worked across different facets of the industry for many years, Richard and I identified a gap in the market. Our aim is to help and support businesses within the catering equipment industry, allowing them to achieve the success that they desire through solutions they have not yet created themselves. Alset Partners works alongside businesses leaders to help unlock their barriers to allow future growth.”
Intended to offer services in three key areas of the marketplace: business growth, talent acquisition and training and development, Alset Partners was created to be a partner for manufacturers, distributors and end users in the foodservice sector.
In the short time that the company has been established, the directors feel they have been able to boost the productivity and success of numerous businesses within the industry, through the recruitment of new staff, support in management areas and the delivery of advice, guidance and training.
Goodchild concluded: “We would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who has supported the business over the last year, and especially to all of the companies who have chosen to work with Alset Partners during this time. We are looking forward to seeing what 2019 brings and continuing our success into our second year.”
