Tiger Foodservice, the delivered foodservice business owned by Hyperama, has promoted Steve Davison from commercial director to managing director.
Before joining Hyperama a year and a half ago, Davison spent 15 years with Aldi, latterly as category director. In his new role, he is tasked with working closely with all members of the Tiger team to ensure the delivery of a ‘customer first’ approach.
Tiger Foodservice has also made three other senior appointments.
Bob Hughes joins the business as head of trading from food importer 4 Corners UAE where he was purchasing director. His previous roles also include senior buyer of Oliver Kay Produce and procurement category manager of Makro UK. In addition, he has worked for Compass Group and Peter’s Food Service.
Greg Saunders has been appointed as head of operations. He has worked in warehousing and logistics for several companies, including Rennies Logistics, DHL and most recently Imperial.
Completing the new senior team is Gavin Jones, who becomes head of sales. He previously spent 11 years with Jones Food Solutions, latterly as commercial director, before joining Lomond Fine Foods as commercial director. He has spent the last three years as a consultant.
Commenting on the appointments, Davison said: “We’re delighted to usher in 2022 with such a strong team, which is committed to positively developing the business to improve every area of our service to customers.”
A Caterforce member, Tiger Foodservice supplies the hospitality, leisure and contract catering sectors and specialises in both food and non-food items, including fresh fruit, vegetables and premium fresh meat.
