ceda welcomes new Vice Chair

We’re pleased to announce ceda’s new Vice Chair; Paul Neville, MD of CHR Equipment Ltd.

At the ceda AGM, on Thursday 8th June 2023, Paul was duly ratified by the ceda Board and will now work alongside ceda Chair, Kirstin Hatherley, and support her in her role.

Commenting on Paul’s appointment, Kirstin said, “It gives me great pleasure to announce the appointment of Paul Neville as my Vice Chair. Paul has demonstrated significant commitment to ceda as a long-standing Member, Regional Chair and 4 years to-date on the Board. I look forward to working with him to further develop ceda.”

Paul himself is delighted with his new role and is keen to get started. He said, “Personally, it’s an incredible honour for me to take on the role as Vice Chair for ceda. I’m excited and looking forward to supporting Kirstin as Chair and the wider ceda family.”

Through Paul’s leadership and dedication, CHR Equipment Ltd have been an active and engaged ceda Member for many years. Paul has sat on many Committees and Groups for ceda, mainly around energy efficiency and sustainability; a subject he and CHR are passionate about. Paul has also been ceda’s Northern Regional Chair for the past 3 years.

Paul continues, “I’ve been in the family business for 30 years. In the last 15 years I have spent a lot of time innovating and delivering sustainable kitchens, driving the designs for the full electrification of the commercial kitchen, using energy optimisation and data from metering and via the connected kitchens, to help clients understand both its running cost and their carbon footprint. As the pace for the digital commercial kitchens and buildings continues to increase, I hope to use my experience here to benefit the ceda Membership, and in turn their clients, in reaching their own net zero targets.”

We’re delighted to have Paul as ceda Vice Chair!
