Ben Pitcher – MYA Director of Transformation – an emerging role – the first month

It has been a fast-paced month for me, engaging in MYA’s approach – data-driven and benefit-focused – all within an accelerating industry upturn and increasing client confidence.

Collaboration with the design department has demonstrated the calculation, quality, and innovation at the heart of design proposals. I have enjoyed working alongside the broader team who are dedicated, friendly and fun.

From a technical perspective, projects at railway stations as well as historic and grade listed buildings have presented new challenges and opportunities for professional development. It has been a pleasure working with clients in new environments, through the support provided by MYA leadership.

The recent ISBA conference – a first for me – was an enjoyable way to meet existing and prospective clients, and to help contextualise my role which will be delivering measurable transformation throughout the whole project life cycle.”

  • The team, led by Carla McKenzie, were meticulous in every detail. They modelled the cleaning requirements to deliver the optimum solution for the facilities across EMEA, and really took time to understand the culture of our business. I have no hesitation in recommending MYA and its team – they are dedicated and innovative, and always go the extra mile.

  • Carla and her team have broad experience in the industry. Apart from being very supportive in inventing (new) concepts, they also make use of their many years of experience when implementing these concepts. Their ultimate goal is to let people enjoy honest and good food.

  • They are brave enough to challenge others in pursuit of the ultimate solution, whether it be behind the scenes with kitchen flow and catering management, or front-of-house service and design.

  • If all companies who serve the independent school sector had your breadth of vision and openness of mind, I have little doubt that the sector would be a richer and more exciting place to be.

  • During the negotiation process, Carla’s knowledge and expertise enabled our company to achieve a very strong commercial outcome, and some significant savings were yielded from the exercise.
