New chair for TUCO

The University Caterers Organisation (TUCO) has announced the appointment of a new chair. Matthew White, who is currently director of catering, hotel and conference services at The University of Reading, will be taking up the position from September.
White moves into his new position after being a director of TUCO for three years and holding the role of vice-chair for the past two. Current chair Julie Barker will be stepping down after five years of overseeing the board management. She remains in her role as director of accommodation and hospitality for The University of Brighton and will continue to sit on the TUCO board.
White said: “TUCO is at an incredibly important point in its progression and I am enormously excited by the next phase of its development. Julie has been a powerful force alongside the TUCO board in evoking change and I would like to personally thank her for everything that she has done over the past five years.
“Together with the board, I will be working tirelessly to advance the learning and development of catering and hospitality teams in line with emerging trends and changes.”
Barker added: “The last five years as chair have been an inspiration and I am delighted that Matthew will be taking over the position. He has a wealth of experience and a passion for the industry that will see him bring the Organisation into a new, creative and cutting-edge era.”
