‘You’re a Star’ awards Recognise Catering Excellence

At the start of 2020 we launched the You’re A Star recognition awards together with our C&I catering brand Angel Hill.

We held our virtual awards in July to recognise the incredible talent in our business that has prevailed during the global pandemic.

Awards were presented in person over the course of the last few weeks. Each of the winners from our Healthcare and Education teams were given a ‘You’re a Star’ certificate and £1,000 shopping vouchers.

2021 ‘You’re a Star’ winners:

  • Keiron Woodward, Chef Manager, Academy Education.

Keiron is very highly regarded by client-side personnel. He has guided the contract through a period of positive transition and tackles any challenge with humour. With his ‘can-do’ attitude and positive energy, he is often called upon to support other sites.

  • David Lambie, Chef Manager, Academy Healthcare

David constantly goes the extra mile and he really cares about his role and the service he offers. He is a great support to his team members, taking a vested interest in their success and happiness.

Keiron Woodward, Chef Manager, Academy Education said: “Working as part of the Academy team at Maghull High School has been an amazing experience. My success is down to the team I work with and I am proud of all we have achieved together.”

Martyn Stockwin, Operations Director at Atalian Servest Food Co, UK & Ireland said: “Recognising great work is always at the heart of what we do and I wanted to say a huge congratulations to all the monthly winners over the last year, as well as our deserving finalists. Working in the contract catering sector is tough on any normal day, however we have been working in unprecedented times through the last 16 months. The pandemic has affected everyone in some way both professionally and personally – therefore our ‘You’re a Star’ awards have been so fundamental.

“We cannot achieve what we do as a business without the dedication and commitment that we see from our teams. The willingness and desire to continually go above and beyond the call of duty is one of the great foundations that allows us to provide a fantastic quality food service, grow our business and retain our clients. I thank everyone for playing their part in our mission to exceed our clients’ and customer’s expectations every day.”
