We’ve recently welcomed industry top picks Stephen Ryan and Claire Smith to our Business Development team, as we continue to gain market share in the industry.

Along with existing Sales Director Kevin Waterson – who has worked in the business for 10 years, the three-strong Business Development team has 60 years’ experience in both front of house interior design and commercial kitchen design and build.

Claire Smith re-joined the ABDA team in February 2017, after an 18-month tenure as Business Development Director at Catering Design Group.  With 19 years’ experience in the industry, Claire’s focus and passion for front of house design projects will bring a wealth of exciting opportunities to ABDA.

Stephen Ryan also joined ABDA as Business Development Manager in January 2017, bringing further expertise and industry knowledge to the business.  Stephen is experienced in both front and back of house catering design, having previously held a business development role at Gratte Brothers Catering Equipment.  Stephen also holds the position of chairman for the CEDA Academy.

David Summer’s, Managing Director at ABDA has said:

‘’We’re looking ahead to an exciting period of growth at ABDA.  Kevin, Claire and Stephen bring a wealth of industry knowledge and expertise to the business. Their passion for high-end design and build, along with a drive for delighting customers across all sectors, will bring huge opportunities to ABDA.’’

Our expertise in front and back of house design and build projects spans across the hotel, restaurant, education, B&I and heritage sectors.
