Duncan Ackery has been named as John Nugent’s successor as Chief Executive of Searcy’s catering company.
Now part of the Alternative Hotel Group (AHG), Searcy’s current contracts include the National Portrait Gallery and 30 St Mary Axe both in London and the Pump House in Bath. London Transport Museum and St Pancras eateries will open in September and November respectively.
AHG was set up in 2005 as a joint venture with the Bank of Scotland and is owner of De Vere Hotels and Village Hotels.
Richard Balfour-Lynn, AHG’s Chairman said, “Duncan has a proven track record of developing and driving high-end catering businesses. Having joined AHG from Tate Catering, his breadth of experience will be invaluable.”
