First Unsung Hero unveiled in Hobart's nationwide campaign

Nick Wood, group chef at foodservice caterer BaxterStorey, is the first winner of Hobart's Unsung Hero campaign.

Wood wins a new Premax standard AUP pass-through dishwasher for his kitchen at the caterer's Deutsche Bank site following recognition for his work at BaxterStorey's Chef Academy by the company's regional executive chef, Hayden Groves.

Alongside his day job, Wood is a dedicated training ambassador at the company's academy, taking the time to engage and mentor young chefs. In the five years since its inception, the scheme has seen some 200 students pass through its diploma level course, going on to fulfil key roles in the organisation.

Speaking about the win, Wood said: "It feels great to be recognised and just as good, if not better, to be nominated as an unsung hero by someone in your own organisation. I love my job at Deutsche Bank but developing people and getting involved with the Chef Academy is something that I'm also very passionate about."
