Our Founders Story

In 2014, with over 28 years of building a successful career within In-Flight Catering and In-Flight Retailing organisations, I faced the enviable choice to continue as a senior Executive or set up my own business. I chose the latter because the prospect of being involved in projects of interest and working with organisations and people that I respect and admire, was extremely attractive.


“The Hayward Partnership” (THP) was subsequently formed in August 2014 providing Consultancy and Interim Management Solutions to the Travel Catering and Retail sector.


Due to the huge demand for flexible, short to medium term, expert support in the sector,  the business quickly evolved into a Global “Virtual Organisation” of independent experts with a diverse range of experience and skill sets that could fulfil every aspect of the industry’s needs.


Partners in THP are selected by invitation only, based on shared values, reputation, experience, track record, and network connections. We share expertise, ideas, opportunities and camaraderie.


Our customers gain access to a highly experienced and deep resource and knowledge pool without the additional central costs of a traditional bricks and mortar consultancy..
