David Hornby appointed as a board Director
Jamie Oliver's Fabulous Feasts welcomes David Hornby to the team this August. David brings a wealth of event sector experience to this newly launched event catering company. Since the company's May 2010 launch there has been huge interest and a raft of potential opportunities. David's focus will be growing the business through its sales, marketing and digital activity.
After fifteen years working in the hospitality sector with highly successful groups including Thistle Hotels, Marriott, DeVere and Intercontinental, David spent six years with Visit London as its Commercial Director. During his time at Visit London, he led the redevelopment of the London Convention Bureau into a dynamic sales and marketing organisation, also establishing the first major events bidding team for London.
Managing Director Nigel Harris comments:
"David will be a great asset in helping us communicate the real differences Jamie Oliver's Fabulous Feasts' can bring to an event. His passion for the events industry is akin to Jamie's for introducing better food to people; I'm sure his enthusiasm and experience will help us achieve Jamie's goal to improve events food and service."
David will be working with Jamie Oliver's Fabulous Feasts, whilst continuing to work on a number of other projects including the England’s World Cup Bid for 2018 and 2022. His vast industry knowledge and extensive experience will be a huge asset in establishing Fabulous Feasts within the events sector.
"I am delighted to be joining such a vibrant company and look forward to bringing Jamie's vision of fresh, simple food served by enthusiastic, informed staff to the events sector. This is an exciting time and Jamie, Nigel and the team are a passionate, inspirational group to be working with. I look forward to introducing the truly unique Fabulous Feasts offering to a wide selection of opportunities, in the knowledge that it will bring a special ingredient to their events."
