Vacherin kick starts financial year with two contract wins
The Royal College of Pathologists was scheduled to move into its new building in the autumn of this year. They were looking for an experienced service partner to mobilise and operate the new venue ‘Events at No. 6’ while also providing services for a full calendar of college events, conferences and internal meetings. The competitive tender process called for a hospitality expert with the energy and resource to spearhead the growth of the event space by promoting it to internal stakeholders, and to the wider marketplace.
Vacherin was awarded the three-year contract in the spring, which includes providing hospitality, catering and reception services and overseeing the management of the events venue and the members’ lounge area for the college. The conference and event space will be open for external events from January 2019.
Vacherin’s remit for their new client in Victoria is to provide hospitality and fine dining within the firm’s client suite on the top floor of their prestigious new building.
These new contracts continue Vacherin’s financial and commercial success – last year having reported a 100 per cent client retention rate and turnover in excess of £25m. The two latest contracts have a combined value of £4 million. Vacherin’s investment in restructuring the business has allowed the company to remain committed to its clients and core values, while benefitting from consistent growth. Last month, Dan Kelly, previously Director of Food was promoted to Deputy Managing Director | Food and Operations to further support the growth of the food-led company.
Chief Executive at the Royal College of Pathologists, Daniel Ross, said: ‘We’re excited to begin this journey with Vacherin, who have a great reputation in London. I’m particularly looking forward to seeing the wide range of exciting food and beverage options to suit the varied customer base likely to be using our new venue.’
Phil Roker, Owner | Managing Director of Vacherin said of the wins: ‘After an incredibly successful year for Vacherin last year, we’re thrilled to see such a great start already. These two contract wins further cement our standing in the London market and we’re excited to be further developing our offering with the new venue space as part of the Royal College of Pathologists partnership.’
