Mustard Catering, the event catering specialist, is building on its senior leadership team by hiring Glen Sutton as sales and operations director. The move follows the acquisition of the catering brand by Kofler and Kompanie and underlines the new wave of ambition across the group.

Sutton brings with him more than 20 years’ experience within the industry and joins the business from Rhubarb Food Design where he was director of events. Before then, he has also worked with some of the biggest brands within the hospitality, sports, entertainment and events industry, including roles at the Roehampton Club and the Royal Albert Hall.

Éadaoin McDonagh, managing director of Kofler and Kompanie UK, said: “We have an exceptional team at Mustard Catering but our intention was always to continue to strengthen it, and grow the business within London’s hospitality and events market. Glen has been in the industry since he was 14 and still retains the same enthusiasm for what he does. This makes him a perfect personality for us and our commitment to quality and delivery in everything we do.”

Sutton commented: “I believe that service, like culinary talent, is more instinct than skill. The very best people in our industry are complete naturals who simply love providing hospitality. Developing and encouraging talent in our sector is the single most important responsibility of today’s leaders; nothing matters more. I am thrilled to be joining Mustard Catering and Kofler and Kompanie at this exciting time in the development of both businesses. Both brands have an unrivalled reputation for quality and it is a privilege to be joining such smart, creative and brilliant teams.”
