THE INTELLIGENCE


Current projects IN MY VIEW Healthy outlook


QWhat foodservice projects are you currently working on?


AI am currently involved with Southmead Hospital in Bristol, Wiltshire


College in Chippenham, Royal Liverpool Hospital, Liverpool and Expo Milano, Milan, Italy.


QWhat work do you specialise in?


AAs a company we seem to have been involved in a lot of healthcare projects, ranging from 1,000-bed hospitals down to 20-bed nursing homes. We have also been involved in a lot of in-flight catering facilities both in the UK and abroad along with various international events.


QWhat do you enjoy most about your profession?


AThe fact that every project I get involved in is always different. Each one is


unique in its own way and creates different challenges and opportunities.


QHow did you end up in this industry?


AI never thought to myself ‘I want to be involved in the catering industry’. I just wanted to be involved in an industry where I could be creative. I got myself a job at a local kitchen distributor after leaving

FCSI associate member Matt Summers works for Hepburn Associates in Gloucester, UK


school and I have basically moved on and developed from there.


QWhat does being an FCSI member mean to you?


ABeing an FCSI member is about giving my client independent professional advice


and abiding by and following the code of ethics. Sadly, I do believe there are companies out there that are not FCSI consultants and they’re involved with other organisations who mislead clients with the wrong advice.


QWhat do you think are the biggest challenges FCSI members are facing?


AIt has to be these companies misleading clients. They tell the client they will give


them free consultation when really they are hiding the cost within the package of equipment they are also supplying. This is a big problem within the industry at the moment that needs to be addressed.


QWhat are your goals for the rest of the year?


AI am getting married in September so getting through that unscathed is my


main objective before hopefully taking Hepburn Associates into new markets next year.


QWhat single achievement in your career makes you most


proud and why?


AIt probably has to be working on the Southmead Hospital

project. Being from the area gives me a sense of pride every time I drive past as we have taken this from concept to completion over a seven-year period.


QWhat interests do you have away from the office? How do you relax?


AI am a very keen golfer so like to spend a Sunday morning on the course (and the


occasional afternoon). I also enjoy dining out. It’s pretty much a given that you will find me in a restaurant somewhere over the course of a weekend.
