The Craft Guild of Chefs CEO Andrew Green has been honoured with an Honorary Fellow from the Faculty of Hospitality and Culinary Arts, Westminster Kingsway College.

“Honorary Fellow appointments are granted to leading figures in the hospitality industry with expertise in areas which are relevant to the future development of this (Westminster Kingsway College) faculty, coupled with their ability to inspire students.”

He continued:
“...there can be no doubt the Craft Guild has thrived under your leadership. In the same spirit, your support of our work has been extremely valued. Undeniably, your journey to the top took dedication, resilience, motivation and inspiration; personal qualities our students need to embrace as they embark on their hospitality careers.”

Upon receiving the Honorary Fellowship, Green said:

“It’s a great honour and privilege to receive this title. To be recognised in this way by my peers is quite humbling. My sincere thanks to Westminster Kingsway College for allowing me to join their prestigious ranks. Now let’s all work together to get the next generation of chefs and hospitality workers ready for the challenges ahead.”
