Tracey Fairclough Nominated for SME News Managing Director of the Year Awards 2022

The TAF Catering Consultancy is delighted to announce Tracey Fairclough has been nominated for the SME News Managing Director of the Year Awards 2022.

SME News report the award focuses on those at the forefront of businesses and seeks to shine a light on those who have shown true excellence in leadership, commitment & determination more than ever over the past 12 months across the UK.

After an uneasy couple of years, those at the forefront of UK businesses have changed and adapted to prove strength and versatility to accommodate the shift to working remotely to keep teams/clients safe with ever-changing rules & regulations.


SME News say they seek to celebrate and reward the momentous contributions leaders make to the social, environmental, and economic prosperity in their business across the nation, recognising now to be the most crucial time for the Managing Director of the Year Awards 2022; the perfect way to showcase managing directors who have kept businesses afloat, changed company dynamics for the better and have even bigger goals for 2022.

The awards are based on merit alone, rather than the number of votes received for each individual and the process works to reward managing directors based on their excellence in the industry, the commitment to their clients and their dedication to services.


Despite the pandemic, Tracey Fairclough reported, earlier this month, TAF is busier, than it’s ever been. In the last two years, more notably, supporting corporate client return-to-work workplace catering strategies with “options” reports to provide a best practice approach by LISTENING, COLLABORATING and DELIVERING bespoke solutions.

Fairclough says “Here we are, February 2022, the landscape of contract hospitality changed forever but the UK reporting the fastest growing economy in the G7 (inc. Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, the UK and the USA). This means that, with corporates now contemplating sustainable return-to-work strategies around flexible working patterns, we’re best placed, more than ever, to support them.

Why? We worked hard throughout 2021. We came off Furlough and travelled over 10,000 miles, completing our biggest projects to date, whilst investing time and money in the the latest consumer reports, visiting over 25 caterers and writing the pioneering TAFTALKS 2021 insights report for our clients.

More than ever, TAF is about supporting corporate clients with relevant, reliable, timely best practice workplace foodservice solutions; reducing financial outlays, as we’ve already gleaned the industry insight to share with them.”
