Appointment of UK Managing Director

Filta Group Holdings PLC (AIM: FLTA), a provider of fryer management and other services to commercial kitchens, is pleased to announce the appointment of Brian Riordan as Managing Director of the Company's UK division, effective 5(th) October 2020.

Brian brings to Filta over 25 years' experience of working across food services and facilities management, sales and marketing, retail and hotels. Most recently Brian was a Divisional Managing Director at Aramark UK, a leading food and facilities services provider which caters for clients across multiple sectors, including education, healthcare, business, prisons, and leisure. Prior to joining Aramark, Brian spent a number of years as an Operations Director at Compass Group, the largest contract food service company in the world.

Brian will lead the growth and development of the existing UK business and will oversee the roll out and expansion of Filta's new partnership with NTH Solutions, a support services group wholly owned by North Tees and Hartlepool NHS Trust. Filta is utilising NTH Solutions' hypochlorous acid based broad-spectrum disinfectant, along with NHS accredited training, as part of the Filta Sanitation Service.

Roscoe Urosevic, currently MD of Filta UK, will resume his role on the Board as Corporate Development Director for the UK, helping to guide the business through the next phase of growth.

CEO of Filta Group, Jason Sayers said: "I am delighted to welcome Brian to Filta Group and look forward to working with him. He brings a wealth of commercial experience in not just food and facilities management but across the hospitality sector too, which will be of tremendous value to the Group. We have excellent products and services that are highly rated by our customers and have achieved good operational performance despite the global pandemic. We expect both our existing and potential new customers in the hospitality business to continue their return to normality and, as such, it is now time to ensure we have everything in place as we seek to continue growing our UK business and broadening our service offering."

Brian Riordan commented: "I am thrilled to be joining Filta at such a critical time in the Company's growth story. With the hospitality sector moving towards a 'new normal' as a result of the pandemic, it is crucial for us to be suitably positioned to service our customer base through these times of continued uncertainty. Filta has already established an outstanding position in the UK, and I am excited to become part of the team."
