UK-based crew recruitment agency, Viking Recruitment, has appointed Mike Carr – an ex-yacht and high-end restaurant chef with over ten years of experience in the culinary industry – as a new member of its recruitment team based in Auckland, NZ.
His role will be focused solely on chef recruitment, and he has recently returned from a long period overseas, predominantly working in the yachting sector.
As owners and guests alike demand more of the world’s best food and cooking on board superyachts, Viking calls his appointment a reflection of “the importance our customers are demanding in the area of chef selection.”
Shreena Patel, PR and marketing coordinator at Viking, commented on Mike’s appointment, “He is joining with the specific mandate to answer our customers’ requirements and strengthen Viking’s experience in this area.
“Mike brings more than 10 years’ experience in the culinary field and has worked in high quality kitchens and galleys on some of the world’s most prestigious yachts and restaurants. He knows what it takes and understands the market.”
