Paddy Bishopp joins the team
We’re very excited to announce that food and drink entrepreneur Paddy Bishopp has joined AT&A as a Strategic Adviser.
Having begun his career as the driving force behind the launch of www.bluecycle.com, Paddy quickly became a central figure in the food and drink industry with the launch of Eat Anglia, a food and drink home delivery and award winning Café/Deli, in 2004.
After selling the business two years later, he went on to launch Paddy & Scott’s, a young, trendy, vibrant coffee company. Now the fastest growing independent coffee company in The UK, Paddy & Scott’s supply over 700 delis, hotels and restaurants as well as Waitrose and Tesco. The company launched three High Street Cafes in 2015 alongside concessions within BP, in Department Stores and Independent Schools. Paddy & Scott’s is the only coffee company in The Accelerate 250 list – The UK’s top 250 dynamic companies, geared for growth.
At the beginning of 2017 he left the day to day operational role at Paddy & Scott’s to focus on his latest venture – Bubble and Squid – an exciting new street food/restaurant concept.
Paddy will use his extensive experience as a food and drink expert to provide us with strategic support as we strive to offer even better value to our food and drink clients. He will keep us up to speed on industry developments so that we can ensure we keep a close eye on the changing risk landscape our clients face.
Paddy had this to say about the appointment:
“I am really delighted to be working with the team at AT&A and use my experience within the Food & Drink industry to support them in a landscape that constantly evolves. I have used their services for many years in various companies and due to their professionalism and knowledge of insurance did not hesitate when offered the chance to join them”
Our CEO, Andrew was in agreement:
“As a corporate insurance broker working with many food & drink companies it is vital that we have a deep insight into all issues that can impact them. We are extremely lucky to secure Paddy as a strategic adviser to support us. Paddy’s knowledge and passion for the sector will give us valuable insight into the issues our clients face and enable us to continue to structure innovative insurance and risk management protection programmes for them. We hope this helps reassure our clients and potential new clients that we are very serious about the provision of first class advice and support’
