Meet the Team
We create a culture of encouragement and support so that our service continually reflects our curiosity and desire to improve. Our catering teams at each school are supported by the strength and depth of knowledge of our support office and operations specialists.
We make time for our teams, nurturing them with our training programmes, rewarding their talent and allowing them the freedom to truly express their creativity. We’re always on the lookout for new and improved ways of working, with our school communities at the heart of everything we do.
Ian joined Holroyd Howe in January as our new Managing Director. Having been part of the WSH family for several years, firstly as Chief Executive of Bartlett Mitchell and more recently as Regional MD of BaxterStorey, he is dedicated to the integrity of the Holroyd Howe DNA and will continue to focus on our people, learning & development and an exceptional food offer.
A wealth of experience surrounds our senior leadership team, having been instrumental in the growth and development of Holroyd Howe.
Not only do our founder and directors have a genuine love of food, they also bring inspirational expertise and a drive to ensure that everyone at Holroyd Howe is immersed in our supportive, energetic and joyful culture.
In addition, internal succession and empowering people to be the best versions of themselves is a value we all hold dear.
From operations management to food development and everything in between, our regional support team is filled with real foodies with a drive to make a difference.
Drawing on their collective expertise, this team is constantly looking for ways to refine how we best serve our schools, and play a pivotal role in the development of our health and safety, sustainability, and food development initiatives.
Janine looks after the South East and believes her team is her secret ingredient “They genuinely care; from creating brilliant food concepts and boarders’ entertainment, to engaging with our parent’s community and actively listening to the school needs”.
Our on-location teams include our chefs, general managers and hospitality assistants, who support our schools directly within their own environments. They are our eyes and ears, working in the heart of each establishment to provide a service that’s tailor-made to our school’s individual needs.
Welcoming and approachable, our on-location teams are always raring to go when to comes to making mealtimes exciting for the pupils we serve.
Our support office houses a real variety of specialities, all working together as one to provide Holroyd Howe with the very best in marketing, sustainability, nutrition and concept development.
Here you’ll find our sports nutrition specialists, our brand gurus, our food experts, and our sustainability & environmental champions, helping our schools and pupils to be at their best.
