Welcome back to John our new Operations manager at the Great Catering Company. We say welcome back because John worked for us 4 years ago in the role as Staff manager, and after a break he is excited to take on the new and challenging role back with us. “ I’m excited to be back working with an amazing team & the inspirational Sue Fleischl. 

A chef by  trade and always worked in hospitality, John has been recently been managing Altura Café, Albany. Some of his prior roles in New Zealand have been the chef behind the opening of Snowplanet & 2nd Chef of Orbit, Sky City. Before moving to New Zealand 16 years ago he worked in London's West End in some top kitchens' under the watchful eyes of Marco Pierre White and none other the Gordon Ramsey.

In his spare time John is a very active runner. Earlier this year he completed his first 100km Ultra Marathon. So he is always up for a challenge!
