Leeds born and bred, I have been a passionate member of the food service community for more than 25 years.
I have broad experience in the manufacturing, distributor, and consultancy environment. My clients have varied from vegan restaurants to care homes, independent schools to historic tourist attractions, fast food chains to manufacturers of portable kitchens
My career path started in Bradford at Victor Manufacturing providing servery design, quotation, and warranty support. I moved to Lockhart Design Services where I cut my teeth in kitchen design and project delivery. Later I was hired by Airedale Group where at first I led the design department in implementing new systems, concepts, and staff development. Eventually, I moved to sales and left the business following 5 years of national account responsibilities. I took the opportunity to work in Daventry at Catering Design Group, where I worked with a talented team handling contract caterers and blue-chip clients. After completing a prestigious project for Nestle, I moved back to my native Yorkshire to get back to what I enjoyed most - design.
Finding my groove in consultation, I spent the next seven years developing projects with my colleagues at Arthur Walton. Following its demise in March 2020, I decided to take the next step and form Hunsworth Food Service Design.
My contemporaries tell me that my skill set is difficult to pigeonhole; in that I am fully conversant with the whole process. From consultation to project delivery.
