We are delighted and proud to announce that our own finance director, Michaela Stephens-Smith, has been appointed as a ceda Board Director.
ceda (Catering Equipment Distributors Association) promotes an atmosphere of enterprise, innovation and fair competition where members operate ethically, encourage excellence and strive for improved standards in both their business and the wider industry.
Commenting on the appointment, Michaela said:
“Having been part of ceda for the last 13 years, I am privileged to have been invited and delighted to join the ceda Board.
“As the industry recovers from one of the most turbulent times in its history and continues to face supply-chain challenges, we must support and learn from each other to progress in the industry and association.
“I look forward to working with the ceda Board and other ceda members on progressive initiatives and hope to see you at a face-to-face event soon!
“And congratulations to Nick who joins as a fellow Board member.”
On 31st March 2022, Michaela was duly ratified in by the ceda Board.
ceda Chair, Kirstin Hatherley, is enthusiastic about what Michaela can bring to the Board. She said, “The ceda Board should represent a good cross-section of our members. It is great to welcome two new members onto the Board that represent large sectors of our membership as well as having many years of knowledge of our industry. I have no doubt that both Michaela and Nick will make excellent contributions and will become valuable members of the team.”
