SITTINGBOURNE-based wholesale distributor, Q Catering, has appointed Nick Jennings as Financial Director, as part of the company’s continued growth plan. Nick joined the company on the 5th September. 

Jennings leaves Kent Frozen Foods (KFF) as the company’s Financial Director after more than 18 years of trading to join Steve Clarke, Q Catering’s Managing Director, and his team during an exciting period of growth.  

Jennings brings a wealth of experience to the role. He progressed from Company Accountant to Finance Director at KFF during the Covid-19 pandemic, where he was responsible for managing the business through unprecedented times. Jennings headed up the Finance and IT departments and had a very hands-on approach to the day-to-day dealings of the company and the 21-person team. During his time there, he played a key role in transforming the business from a SME to a multi-scale corporation.   

Joining Clarke on the journey to grow Q Catering’s annual turnover to £20 million by 2030, Jennings will lead on all company financials, including ensuring the smooth transition from Roger Snelling, the company’s previous owner. He will play a strategic part in heading up the company’s financial future, recognise opportunities of growth alongside the sales team, and initiate new systems throughout Q Catering’s expanding operations.

Nick Jennings, Financial Director at Q Catering, comments: “I’m thrilled to have joined Q Catering and the ambitious team here. The company is going through a real period of growth so it’s an exciting time to be a part of it. I have known Steve for more than 18 years and worked very closely with him in my previous role. I followed his investment journey into Q Catering last year and we stayed in contact, so when the opportunity arose to join his team, I jumped at the chance.  

“I’ve been in the role for four weeks now and already see so much potential in the company. Steve and the team are brilliant and the route to success is very clear. I’m slowly having to ask less and less questions on how to do things the Q way! It’s like learning a new language rather than a new role which is somewhat comforting. Q Catering already has a very strong foundation and I look forward to playing a part in this next crucial stage of development” Jennings concludes.  

A trusted and reliable foodservice wholesaler, Q Catering is invested in its customers, offering an ever-increasing range of high-quality grocery, chilled, and frozen food products, from local and national suppliers.
