Searcys ousts ISS at the Institute of Chartered Accountants

Searcys has secured a five-year deal to provide hospitality services at One Moorgate Place, headquarters of The Institute of Chartered Accountants in England and Wales (ICAEW).

The caterer has displaced ISS, which had held the contract for five years and provided concierge and reception services for a further nine years at the London venue.

It will provide catering for events in the refurbished 600 capacity Great Hall, meeting rooms and at the members café.

Searcys managing director Matt Thomas said: "We are delighted by the confidence ICAEW has shown in appointing Searcys. We very much enjoy working with clients whom mirror our own values. Such values include a dedication to staff training and development that will allow their loyal team to prosper under our management."

Thomas added that Searcys events team will also be working to promote the venue.

Sharron Gunn, executive director at ICAEW, added: "One Moorgate Place is a unique venue which brings together over 120 years of tradition with state of the art conference and events facilities. It was important that we selected the right partner to work with us at this special venue, and we are therefore delighted to appoint Searcys and look forward to working with them over the coming years."
