Andrew Green takes over at Craft Guild of Chefs

Craft Guild of Chefs CEO Martin Bates is to retire from the role, with vice-president Andrew Green (pictured) taking over in the new role of director of operations.

The move comes as the chefs' association celebrates its 50th anniversary.

Green has had a long career in contract catering, from running the head office of the Daily Mail General Trust for Compass Group to his present position of group manager for independent school caterer the Brookwood Partnership.

Chairman Christopher Basten said: "With Martin leaving, it was the ideal opportunity to review our management structure, and we felt a more office-based leader would be the best way to take the guild forward. Andrew is the ideal candidate, bringing with him a wealth of working knowledge, a passion for quality and an almost forensic detail to the way he works.

"I'd also like to take the opportunity to thank Martin for his sheer dedication and outstanding contribution to making the guild the fantastic association it is today. He has been a staunch supporter of the guild's commitment to promoting education and the advancement of culinary art and science across all sectors, and we wish him well in his retirement."
