Known for his keen interest in new technology, Tagg spends much of his time looking outwards into the market and feeding the latest information back to Space’s sales and project management teams.

In total, he has spent 36 years in the catering equipment industry, 17 of those at Space itself, following a 15-year stint at Lockhart Catering Equipment between 1984 and 2000.

Tagg detailed that he is “bowing out for personal/family reasons” and thanked his industry colleagues for their “patience and understanding when dealing with me during these years”
