Tim Whitfield crop

It has been yet another successful year for GastroNorth thanks to the drive of director Tim Whitfield.

Working closely with fellow directors at the distributor, Tim has continued his mission for business growth, developing current relationships and continually forging new relationships with national customers and chain accounts.

He is fully dedicated to overseeing company growth developing contracts, successfully allowing GastroNorth to be developed as much as it possibly can as each year goes by.

This year the firm launched its very own GastroLab, an innovative kitchen environment that aims to showcase numerous products and demonstrate what they can offer with fun and informative cooking presentations.

Tim is a creator and major driver behind the phenomenon that is the GastroLab, ensuring its promotion to both public and industry. He was instrumental in pushing the idea that the demonstration kitchen should be as close to a live site environment as possible, to ensure that visiting operators will get an accurate picture of how the installed equipment will operate in service.

Ensuring the development of employees is also important to Tim, promoting staff from within and moving young members up into senior roles.

His industry colleagues describe him as an “inspiration” and that he works with a sensible, methodical and practical approach: “Nothing much ever fazes Tim,” they lauded.
