ceda welcomes new Board Director

We’re pleased to announce a new appointment to the ceda Board.

On the 8th June 2023, Natasha Baker of Gratte Brothers Catering Equipment Ltd, was duly ratified in by the ceda Board and is now a ceda Director.

Commenting on Natasha’s appointment, ceda Chair, Kirstin Hatherley said, “I would like to welcome Natasha on board. I believe that she will add value to our association and the wider industry and I hope that she will find her time with ceda a rewarding experience.”

Natasha herself is delighted with her new role and is keen to get started. She said, “I am absolutely delighted to be appointed as a Director of ceda.  I had no idea back in 1996, when I joined Gratte Brothers Catering Equipment, how ingrained the world of commercial catering equipment would become, it is therefore an incredible honour to now be able to bring my years of experience into the wider industry.  Thank you to Kirstin, Adam and the Board of Directors for affording me this opportunity.”

Natasha joined Gratte Brothers Equipment Limited in 1996 as a Projects Administrator. Her background in Project Coordination allowed her deal with many different stakeholders from the supply chain through to the end user. She was promoted to Business Support Manager in 2017, was soon elevated to Head of Operations and then to her current position as Service & Operations Director.

Natasha continues, “I am very passionate about this industry, which is enhanced by the people within it sharing the same passion and drive for delivering the exceptional customer experience that is expected by the end user. I feel incredibly fortunate to be in a position where I can make a difference to our team, the industry and the customer.

“Being a part of the ceda Board is the icing on the cake, giving further opportunities to be effective by bringing my many years of knowledge to the table. Gratte Brothers have been a member of ceda for 35 years with several of my predecessors being actively involved, I therefore feel incredibly honoured and grateful to be afforded this opportunity.”

We’re delighted to have Natasha as part of the Board!
