Andy Wood, a stalwart of the catering equipment industry, joined TAG Catering Equipment UK this month as commercial manager, an entirely new role for the Hertfordshire-based kitchen design house.
Wood has been working in the industry for over 35 years delivering various projects for a range of hospitality environments, most notably hotels and restaurants, having recently worked for Essex-based distributor, CCE Group, and prior to that, Lockhart Catering Equipment.
TAG will be utilising Wood’s industry experience to support the projects team and the company’s internal strategies and objectives, as it looks to expand into new market sectors.
Wood said: “I am delighted to be joining such a progressive and renowned, award-winning company.
“The industry is facing a difficult time, to say the least, but I’m confident that the team and company are well placed to achieve its objectives over the coming months and years, and look forward to the challenge of helping to shape its future.”
Tyron Stephens-Smith, project and creative director, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Andy to the team during such a turbulent time for the industry and the wider hospitality sector. It signals a positive new direction for TAG and we look forward to the insight and experience Andy can bring, supporting us on our plans.”
