Radford Chancellor Ltd has become the latest company to be granted membership of the FCSI.
The Sussex-based foodservice consultancy confirmed that it had been accepted into the consultancy body’s UK and Ireland chapter.
The company’s director, Radford Chancellor, has been awarded ‘Professional’ consultant level, which it said is the highest level the FCSI offers.
The FCSI membership comes almost four years to the day since the company was founded. This year it is on track to grow its business 25% and was recently boosted by news that it has been appointed the catering consultants for a large oil and gas company in the Gulf.
Chancellor explained that he has held off applying for FCSI membership up to now as he wanted to ensure the company could meet the FCSI’s strict entry criteria and present a sufficient case history to achieve Professional status.
“I strongly believe FCSI members are respected by our industry,” he said. “I have had equipment suppliers tell me in the past that I am not a ‘real’ consultant as I was not a FCSI member, so I am hoping the membership will allow others to see that I am serious about the work I do and provide our clients with the peace of mind that we are credited for in our sector. I look forward to becoming an active member, and one of the youngest members, of the FCSI."
Radford Chancellor Ltd is also a member of the Institute of Consulting, which it says serves to demonstrate its credibility and trustworthiness, and instil confidence in its ability to deliver to clients.
