MYA Consulting Reinforces Its Educational Team

Bev Lusty appointed as Consultant Director, Education

The relationship between MYA Consulting and the independent schools sector goes back nearly 30 years, and during that time they’ve offered transformative help with catering and housekeeping to an amazing 500 schools.


Now they’re strengthening their team with the appointment of Bev Lusty as a new Consultant Director. Bev has a decade of experience in the sector, and a range of talents: from raising standards across the board, to raising income though special events and out-of-term opportunities. 


Carla McKenzie MD comments:

“It’s a tough time for education, and we’re all dealing with the ‘new normal’. But change also means opportunity, and there’s never been a better time to offer robust and practical advice, to keep catering departments running smoothly while ensuring pupil wellbeing. 


“I’m delighted to welcome Bev aboard. She knows schools inside out, she’s experienced, she’s flexible and she knows just how to help a school to achieve its full potential. We’re not cutting back, we’re looking for growth! Bev will drive that expansion by working with schools who are looking to manage change, to manage costs, and to do things better.”
