Alan Cruite of Trinity Purchasing, part of the Avendra Group was elected Chair of IFSA 2021 – 2023 at the Annual General Meeting held on Monday 29th November. He will be assisted by Conrad Greene of Stephen’s Catering Equipment who will act as Vice-Chair. Alan will succeed Patrick Clement who held the position of IFSA Chair since 2019. Speaking following the AGM, Alan said:
“It is an honour for me to accept the Chair today but a hard act to follow as Patrick and the Team did such a great job over the last 2 years in very difficult times.
I am very excited about taking on the role and I know my fellow Board Members and the rest of the IFSA team will be there as always to support me.
As Chair one of my goals is to continue to promote IFSA’s Core Values and grow the membership so we can continue to leverage our collective strengths and resources to deliver a suite of benefits for our members and offer support to end users in the Foodservice Sector across the Island of Ireland.
I look forward to working with the Team over the next two years but In the short term I hope we can all get through the next few weeks and have a healthy, happy and peaceful Christmas.
Finally, a thank you to you the members for supporting the organisation because without you we would not exist.”
