The Interview Bill Toner, Chief Executive, CH & Co Group

Bill is one of the leading names in the Industry but so few really know the real character. He has been a leading figure across the food service sector for thirty years and been a ground breaker in many ways.

This interview explores Bill’s story from his early days as one of 5 children facing the stark prospect of working in the mines, to his career with Gardner Merchant, Sodexo and Aramark to his most recent building of the CH & Co Group.

The interview covers his 5-year retirement, the challenge of the pandemic, working with many of the great figures in the industry including Gary Rhodes, and Sir Garry Hawkes as well as the importance of good teams.

Bill was open and candid throughout this engaging interview.
