Steve Hobbs, director of Grande Cuisine, commented: "Graham has decided that now is the right time to retire, having spent more than 40 years in the industry, during which time he has taken on a varied number of operational and sales roles, from trainee chef at the Dorchester through to his current role at Grande Cuisine."

"Although Graham will be stepping down from his current day-to-day activities, he has agreed to stay involved with the business as part of an exciting new initiative that Grande Cuisine will be launching in January 2020."

The well-known, and respected Russell has been with Grande Cuisine since the company launched in 2013 and was involved in some of the company's most high-profile projects including Gleneagles, Jesmond Dene House, House of Tides and, most recently, Grantley Hall.

Russell added: "I will miss the day-to-day interaction with customers but am very much looking forward to my new role."
