We are delighted to be celebrating a remarkable anniversary as our Director John Downman completes 30 years working with the company.

Based in Tricon’s London office, John started with Tricon as a management consultant having previously been our client at The Barbican Centre, London. John’s early years were spent helping grow and develop the company’s management consultancy team, becoming a director of the business in 2003. He has since focused on developing the Middle East markets where he now travels extensively on project work. In this role John leads the initial strategic development for a multitude of high profile projects internationally and oversees the projects, delivering both management consultancy & design.

Commenting on his anniversary, Tricon’s Managing Director, Mike Coldicott said, “John has been a great asset to the business, acting selflessly throughout in the progression and development of the company. I have watched him grow and develop over the years to now being one of the most experienced and respected foodservice management consultants in the industry”.

On his 30 years with Tricon, John Downman said, “I still get a buzz from new projects and their challenges. Consultancy can give us the privilege of seeing the inner workings of a project or organisation without becoming embroiled in the internal politics. Projects over the last 30 years have covered every sector where people eat outside of the home. The international projects mean we need also to understand and respect different cultural requirements and traditions. It continues to be a fascinating insight with new challenges.”
