Mick Shaddock, former chair of the Catering Equipment Suppliers Association (CESA) and recently retired managing director of Victor Manufacturing has been named the winner of the 2016 Outstanding Contribution to the Catering Equipment Industry Award sponsored by The Caterer and CESA at CESA's recent gala dinner.
Glenn Roberts, newly crowned chair of CESA, presented Mick with his award, and said: "It's a great honour and privilege to present this year's award to such a worthy and distinguished person. He is known to every one of us and is absolutely one of those who we are all proud to work with."
Having spent a career working with many of the leading British catering equipment manufacturers, Shaddock joined Victor in 2001 as managing director, leaving in 2016. Roberts noted the huge contribution he had made to CESA and the whole catering equipment industry, joining CESA as a council member in 2005 and becoming chair in 2012.
"Over the years his calm, thoughtful but decisive approach has been key to many of the important development decisions that we have taken within CESA," added Roberts.
