The creator and driving force of The Red Olive. Charlie has over 30 years of experience in the catering industry from training at Le Gavroche to creating dishes for Royalty. Charlies passion for perfection means that every event runs seamlessly time after time. With a social nature like Charlies it means that although he works hard, he certainly plays hard too! All of this wouldn’t be possible without the constant support Charlie receives from his wife, Sarah and his three lovely boys.
Executive Head Chef & Cook Book Collector

Like Charlie, Darren also trained with The Roux Brothers at Le Gavroche so straight away Darren understood Red Olive’s desire to create quality and interesting dishes. Darren recently moved from The Big Smoke to the greener pastures of Derbyshire and has since implemented great changes to our kitchens. His food is elegant, modern and not to mention tasty! Darren’s friends & wife take full advantage of the culinary wiz-kid, after all “there ain’t no rest for the wicked!”
Senior Event Manager & Shoe-aholic

Cat joined Red Olive in Spring 2015 and has since seen nothing but praise and compliments from our clients. With her eye for detail, calming nature and years of event experience she is exactly what you need to make sure your event runs smoothly. We all know that this industry is not the best for free time but when Cat does get some time off she makes the most of it! If you want to try out a new restaurant or find a nice bar to prop up, Cat is your personal Tripadvisor, she’s done them all!
Event Planner & Gin-lover
email@example.com • Mon – Fri
Hannah came to Red Olive in 2014 and knows the business inside out. Always happy and positive, she is the perfect person to guide our clients through the event planning process, there has never been a problem Hannah can’t solve! With a background in design, Hannah is highly creative with a sharp eye for detail and is the driving force behind our social media and website, and as if that wasn’t enough, she also styles events for friends in her spare time! When Hannah isn’t planning or styling events, she can mostly be found in the pub sampling the Gins or planning her next short break…the girl loves to travel!
Account Manager & Office Mum
firstname.lastname@example.org • Mon – Fri
Jane has been with The Red Olive for over 7 years and is our “go-to-girl” for all things money! If you can’t find something or need an answer to your question, there is a good chance that Jane is already a step ahead of you. Like all family units they are held together by their Mum and The Red Olive family is no exception! But, Jane isn’t always as “prim and proper” as we make out, you can often find her with a large G & T in hand (Hendricks, only the best for Lady Jane!)
Kitchen Assistant & Walking Joke Book
email@example.com • Tues – Sat
Tim is our longest standing Red Olive member (except for CT of course!) His positive and “can do” attitude mean that the kitchen and office are constantly battling over the custody of this hard worker! Whether he is creating canapes or packing vans you can always trust Timmy to get the job done. We all look forward to hearing what joke he will come out with next (although some of them you wish you hadn’t heard!)
Apprentice & Panna Cotta Queen
firstname.lastname@example.org • Tues – Sat
Kat came to Red Olive for work experience and straight away we clocked her ability and sunny nature. It’s very rare to find such a young girl who can cope with the demands of a busy kitchen but Kat never looks fazed – especially with that cheeky grin she constantly has on her face! In 2016 Kat was awarded Bronze in her first Hotel Olympia competition, we knew she was a good’un.
The makers, the doers, the creatives, the organisers, the people who know just when to put the kettle on, the van packers, the van unpackers, the number crunchers, the people who dot the i’s and cross the t’s, the jokers, the night owls, the early birds, the young guns, the experienced, the people that hold us all together and the people that make it happen!
