Glynn Purnell joins ISS Food and Hospitality as feature chef

Michelin-starred chef Glynn Purnell has partnered with ISS as the firm's new feature chef to promote excellence in food and hospitality.

Purnell will work with ISS on initiatives including the ISS White Collection fine-dining concept, pop-up events, enrichment sessions and new stage work placements.

He will also work with all levels of the ISS talent pool in the Business & Industry catering arena including the ISS Leeds Academy student cohort.

Lloyd Mann, foodservice director, ISS Food and Hospitality said: "We are delighted to have Glynn join us. With his passion, personality and charismatic approach to food and services he is a great fit with our entire ethos at ISS."

He added: "As a business, we're evolving all the time and Glynn will work with us as we elevate our creative strategy to the next level. He has a fantastic reputation, utter belief in our craft and will inspire our next generation of chefs and service people. He's creative, grounded and community-minded which is absolutely the perfect balance for us."

Purnell said: "In my career I've had the privilege to see a great deal of adventure and passion in cooking around the UK. I'm delighted to work with new people who are proud of their craft.

"I like to challenge traditional ideas around food concepts whilst bringing amazing food sensations to the table and to see our established chefs and new talent work with innovative ideas. Working with ISS will allow me to experience even more of this."

Stephanie Hamilton, managing director, ISS Food & Hospitality, said: "I love Glynn's food and his approach to the guest experience, I find his dishes and his beliefs inspiring and I am delighted that we are working together.

"My team in food and hospitality will really enjoy the time we have planned with him and I know that we are about to embark on something exceptional and ground breaking for the team and our clients, and I can't wait to get started."

The restaurateur and TV personality owns and runs the Michelin-starred Purnell's in Birmingham, Gingers Bar and Purnell's Bistro.
