The catering equipment industry has massively celebrated the unveiling of Catering Insight’s Power List, with nearly 150 tweets or retweets received by Catering Insight on the subject in the first 24 hours since the big reveal.
The supplement profiled 50 of the top catering equipment distributor personalities currently in the industry.
The Twitter flurry included comments such as “Party time at Sprint HQ!” from the Sprint Group, after hearing that the firm’s design development and project manager, Ross Ryan, was featured in the young trailblazers category. Ryan himself commented that one of the projects he is most proud of is mentioned in his Power List profile: the Ivy Chelsea Garden, a large scale job which ran over 6 months.
This category’s sponsor, PFR, tweeted congratulations to all the nominees in this section, including CHR Equipment’s project co-ordinator Amy Hartnett, with the distributor publicising her nomination.
Furthermore, Grey Simmonds said it was “very proud of our Oliver Hardwicke for making it into the Power List”, as the firm’s CAD designer and assistant project manager was also included in the young trailblazers section.
Garners Food Service Equipment joked that its project manager, Jonathan Meats, will turn into a diva, thanks to his inclusion in the project pioneers category, and it also congratulated all other nominees. Whitco applauded its national accounts manager, Isabella Anello-Jewry, for her appearance in the same section.
In the business leaders category, IFSE said well done to its MD, Andrew Fordyce, for his inclusion. While Catering Design Group reported it is “thrilled” that its MD, Philip Howard, is in this section.
Professional Kitchen Service’s MD Kevin Davis exclusively told Catering Insight that his reaction to being nominated in the business leader category is: “I am really proud of this recognition and it sends a positive message out about the development of our business.”
Acme hailed its commercial director, Simon Mallett’s appearance in the industry innovators category and also congratulated all others involved. HG Stephensons broadcasted that its MD, Henry Stephenson, was included in this section, while Crosbys praised the inclusion of its director, Roger Crosby, in the category.
Chiller Box was more than happy to highlight that its project co-ordinator Lloyd Jermy was part of the unsung heroes section and congratulated all who made the list. Trimline was especially pleased that its catering business development manager, Colin Stapely, was included in this category, as the firm is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year.
Finally, CEDA reported that: “It’s great to see so many CEDA members in the running and partners supporting the Power List.”
