Alice Woodwark has been appointed managing director of Restaurant Associates, the fine-dining sector of catering provider Compass Group UK & Ireland.

Alice brings a wealth of expertise and experience to the role, most recently holding the position of managing director for Chartwells Independent.

Prior to this, Alice was group head of strategy and mergers & acquisitions at Compass Group PLC, having joined Compass from McKinsey & Company, where she specialised in operational transformation and business building.

Alice is replacing James Boyle, who is moving to the USA to head up a major global client account for Compass Group, after 11 years with Restaurant Associates.

Alice commented: “Restaurant Associates is a fantastic organisation with a strong culinary heritage. We have outstanding talent and great clients and I’m looking forward to further developing the business and working with the team.”  

Restaurant Associates recently announced a charity partnership with Refettorio Felix, a community kitchen based in London. It offers a lunchtime food service to vulnerable members of the community, serving meals from surplus ingredients that would otherwise be wasted.

Restaurant Associates will be working with the charity to share the expertise of some of its people, including chefs. The partnership was launched earlier this month, with a fundraising dinner that raised almost £4k for the charity.
