Tevin Tobun has been appointed to the committee of Arena, the networking association for the foodservice and hospitality industry.
Tobun is chief executive of Gate Ventures (GV) Group, the holding company for a number of brands offering logistics services to the foodservice sector. With his industry knowledge and 10 years of experience as an active member of Arena, Tobun will help support the strategic direction of Arena while serving as a committee member.
“It is an honour to play a more active role within Arena,” says Tobun. “Over the last 10 years as a member, I’ve benefited from the opportunities to meet and network with my peers. So too has the sector, which has reaped the rewards of the idea sharing and contact building that the countless Arena events undoubtedly generate. I look forward to working with my fellow committee members as we take Arena to the next stage in its rich history.”
“I’m delighted Tevin has joined the committee,” says Steve Norris, chairman of Arena. “He not only brings a wealth of experience to the team, but he is also passionate about the industry and how we ensure Arena is for the future.”
Tobun will join a number of new appointments to the Arena committee, including Paul Whiteley, buying director for Greene King, and Tim Adams, director of marketing and corporate sales for Bidfood.
