Phillip Nash re-joins Graysons as director

Phillip Nash has re-joined the B&I contract caterer he helped found in 2008.

He has returned to Graysons Restaurants as a director after the sale of its education arm to the Brookwood Partnership in May. The caterer now intends to focus solely on B&I and commercial contracts.

Graysons managing director Tim O'Neill said Nash's return heralded "a really exciting time for our business as we look to grow in both the business and industry and commercial restaurant sectors, a growth based upon our commitment and passion for quality fresh ingredients and bespoke catering and hospitality services for our client partners".

Earlier this month Graysons announced that it had secured a contract with sanitary products supplier Kimberly Clark worth £1.1m.

Working in partnership with facilities management provider Facilicon, it picked up the three-year deal from incumbent operator Sodexo.

Graysons Restaurants was set up in 2008 with backing from ex-Compass chairman Sir Francis Mackay. Since the sale of its education arm it had been rumoured that a buyer was being sought for the remainder of the business. But the company has dismissed speculation saying that its focus is on its events catering and business and industry arm.
