CH&Co has appointed Fiona Gilbertson as operations director covering the south and south east, with responsibility for driving sustainable growth.

Gilbertson has previously worked in strategic partnership and brand management with River Cottage and headed up sustainability for RA Venues, a division of Compass.

Matt Symonds, managing director of CH&Co, said: "We're very excited to welcome Fiona, Arun and Susan to the team. They each bring to the business great knowledge, experience and qualities that will help us realise our growth objectives through new business and client retention, and the development of our people.

"They are enthusiastic innovators, with a passion for food, people and sustainability – attributes that perfectly match the values of CH&Co. I look forward to working with them as we continue to create exciting experiences for our clients and our teams."
