Creed Foodservice has appointed Steve Rich as Operations Director to strengthen its senior management team.
With more than 30 years’ experience in wholesale and distribution, Steve brings a wealth of knowledge with him to this role. Having started his career as a Sales Manager for Booker Food Services, he went on to undertake a variety of senior managerial and operational roles with Bidvest 3663, including, most recently, Operations Director for the Midlands.
A large regional delivered wholesale business with depots in both Gloucester and Ilkeston in Derbyshire, Creed Foodservice provides a quality, multi-category delivered wholesale service to caterers across all sectors including education, care, hospitality, and destination leisure.
As Operations Director for Creed, Steve will be responsible for inventory, supply-chain, transport and warehouse management. He takes on the role from Philip de Ternant who was recently appointed as Managing Director to lead the company as it embarks on the latest phase of its development plan.
“Creed is a successful business and I have joined the company at a really exciting time. I very much look forward to utilising my industry experience and working with the company as it continues to grow.”
