Foodservice consultancy Tricon’s international project director, John Downman, is celebrating 30 years working at the company.

Having joined in 1987 as a management consultant, he was responsible for growing and developing the company's management consultancy team, before becoming a director in 2003. He has since focused on developing its Middle East markets, which involves “leading the initial strategic development for a multitude of high profile projects internationally, and overseeing them - delivering both management consultancy & design.”

Downman said: “I still get a buzz from new projects and their challenges. Consultancy can give us the privilege of seeing the inner workings of a project or organisation without becoming embroiled in the internal politics.

“Projects over the last 30 years have covered every sector where people eat outside of the home. The international projects mean we need also to understand and respect different cultural requirements and traditions. It continues to be a fascinating insight with new challenges.”

Tricon’s managing director, Mike Coldicott commented: “John has been a great asset to the business, acting selflessly throughout in the progression and development of the company. I have watched him grow and develop over the years to now being one of the most experienced and respected foodservice management consultants in the industry”.
