He is really passionate about building high performance cultures and training and development and regularly gets involved in the wider development of people at McFT.

Mark hails from a village near Reading, is interested in most competitive team sports, and is a bit of a ‘dab hand’ in the kitchen, so he says!

Chris Craggs

Chris grew up in France and Germany, working in hospitality in France for three years before spending 7 years with THF in F & B management. Switching to the supply side, he joined catering equipment dealers CCA based in Maidenhead and gained a rapid understanding of the equipment market. Setting out in the teeth of the early nineties recession, weathering expensive lessons along the way, he is passionate about building and creating opportunities for the team. Chris lives near Oxford and enjoys leisurely motorbiking and adventure travel.

Alistair Collins

Alistair joined the business in 2014 following 17 years in the Coffee Industry running supply chain and service operations across the UK. Born in Colombo, Sri Lanka, he spent the early part of his life in Nigeria & Ireland before moving to Britain in the late 70’s. He believes passionately that the development of the team drives the business forward and that the way we communicate is as important as the ability to fix the equipment. He celebrates the team successes and encourages everyone to take ownership at all levels of the organisation. He enjoys personal challenge and supports a number of charitable causes at every opportunity.


Kate Smith

Throughout Kate’s career, her passion for people development has spanned both corporate and SME markets ranging from programme development to achieving external recognition. Whilst at McFT, she has formalised training plans across the company for technicians & customer service co-ordinators, as well as a leadership programme for aspiring team leaders. Results have shown how a structured approach not only provides clear personal development objectives but also encourages people to take ownership of their own learning and career development.

George Roberts-Smith

George joined McFT in 2012 following a light spell at Southampton studying Engineering. He spent 3 years in the UK office overseeing a number of process improvement programmes (including the introduction of our tablet system) before packing his bags and heading out to the Middle East. Since arriving in Dubai George has overseen the opening of our offices in the UAE and Qatar and is now charged with the onward expansion of McFT across the GCC. George’s focus on people and passion for customer service is one of the main factors enabling McFT to quickly find a following of customers in this new market.
