Nick Haynes, MD of Dine Contract Catering
Workplace caterer Dine Contract Catering has bolstered its senior leadership team following the appointment of Nick Haynes as managing director.

Nick has put together a leadership team, appointing Linda McAra as head of operations, Gemma Evans-Hurley as head of culinary and Sophie Beavon as marketing manager.

The appointments follow a relaunch of the brand, putting food, flavour and a promise to be a force for good at the heart of the business, as the company seeks to increase its market share by 30%. Nick joined Dine Contract Catering having spent the last nine years at Eurest.

He said: “We felt it was important to strengthen our operations team and culinary support to take the business to the next level. Gemma’s is a completely new role and we are delighted to have her on board. Her appointment reflects our desire to maximise our heritage in food, as well as bringing nutrition, health and wellbeing into the mix.

“Her history of championing women in food is outstanding, and I’m proud this is an exciting and diverse leadership team. Linda’s role, as a third head of operations, is also newly created and she brings extensive experience to the business.

“Sophie has seven years of experience inside Compass Group, starting her career on the graduate development programme before specialising in marketing and most recently digital engagement. These are appointments that strengthen the business and put us on course to achieve our goals.”

As part of its rebrand Dine, which is part of Compass Group UK & Ireland, is underlining its commitment to achieving Net Zero by 2030.
