New senior appointment for catering firm

Catering company Crosbys, located in Newcastle upon Tyne, has appointed Mark Gubbins as the firm’s new managing director, with responsibility for driving the company’s 46-strong team to new heights.

Prior to joining Crosbys, Mark was Finance Director at The Gainford Group, a North East family-owned leisure business which operates in the bar, restaurant and large hotel sectors and whose venues include The Vermont Hotel, The County Hotel, Aveika and Livello.

Mark also spent almost eight years as Finance Director for The Apartment Group – operator of bars, restaurants and wedding venues across the North East including As You Like It, Newton Hall and Le Petit Chateau.

At Crosbys, Mark has already implemented some new and innovative systems which will lay the platform for the company’s ambitious growth plans over the next few years.

Commenting on his new role, Mark said: “As I have been a client of Crosbys for many years through my previous employers, I have been familiar with the firm’s work for some time, so when the opportunity arose to join the team it felt like a perfect fit.”

Roger Crosby, business development director of Crosbys, added: “We are delighted to have a candidate of Mark’s calibre joining our team. His wealth of financial experience, combined with his in-depth knowledge of the hospitality industry and dynamic approach will be hugely valuable to us as we continue to grow.”
