ceda welcomes two new Board Directors

We’re delighted to announce two new appointments to the ceda Board.

On the 31st March 2022 both Nick Archer, of Archer Catering Systems Ltd and Michaela Stephens-Smith, of TAG Catering Equipment UK Ltd, were duly ratified in by the ceda Board and are now ceda Board Directors.

ceda Chair, Kirstin Hatherley, is enthusiastic about what the duo can bring to the Board. She said, “The ceda Board should represent a good cross section of our members. It is great to welcome two new members onto the Board that represent large sectors of our membership as well as having many years of knowledge of our industry. I have no doubt that both Michaela and Nick will make excellent contributions and will become valuable members of the team.”

Nick is proud to have been approved by the Board. He’s passionate about the technical training ceda offers and is keen to see this grow during his term. He said, “It was an honour to be asked to join the ceda Board. As the current Vice Chair of the ceda Technical Group it almost feels a natural progression to continue pushing the industry to promote all that is good, plus what we can achieve when we all work together. I especially want to see the continuation of the training platforms that have been put in place, being able to assist in taking these even further is something we all should within the ceda family be very proud of. May I take this opportunity to thank Kirstin and the fellow Board members for this opportunity and congratulate Michaela as the other new Board member. I look forward to working with you all.”

“Having been part of ceda for the last 13 years, I am privileged to have been invited and delighted to join the ceda Board. As the industry recovers from one of the most turbulent times in its history and continues to face supply-chain challenges, we must support and learn from each other to progress the industry and association. I look forward to working with the ceda Board and other ceda members on progressive initiatives and hope to see you at a face-to-face event soon! And congratulations to Nick who joins as a fellow Board member.”
