School caterer Principals by CH&CO has made two ‘key’ appointments to support its growing business, having added 16 news schools to its portfolio this year.

Colin Wills has joined as operations director for secondary schools and existing employee, Verity Butcher (who has been with Principals by CH&CO for 12 years) has been promoted to operations manager for London primary schools.

Wills – a qualified chef – brings 30 years culinary and operational experience, which the company hopes will ‘enable him to create excellent relationships with catering teams and clients’ to deliver ‘outstanding’ food and service.

Butcher meanwhile will monitor the performance of its London-based schools and be their main day-to-day contact. Having worked with the company for the last 12 years, she has worked her way up from general assistant to operations manager.

Principals by CH&CO sales director, Peter McKenna, said: “It’s great that Colin and Verity have joined the team. Their valuable contribution will uphold (Principals by CH&CO’s) reputation of delivering innovative, creative solutions and building genuine partnerships with the schools we work with to be a positive part of each school community.

“Their excellent operational, management and customer skills will benefit our catering teams, clients and, most importantly, the children we feed. 

“Principals by CH&CO is in a period of continued growth that is seeing us expand and move into new geographical areas. Colin and Verity are the perfect candidates to support this and help maximise the opportunities”.
