About Ewan Venters

best-connected men in Britain, Fortnum & Mason CEO Ewan Venters has led the famous Piccadilly destination to a succession of major achievements in his four years at the helm.

Now firmly established as one of the most influential people on the British food scene and heralded by many, including the Daily Telegraph, as a true British food visionary, Fife native Ewan has been a London resident for approaching 30 years – and a Fortnum’s regular for just as long.

Ewan has a strong background in food retailing, having joined the Sainsbury management trainee programme at 17, and progressed through the ranks to the post of food buyer. He then joined the food services supplier Brakes, where he held a number of senior posts before being approached by the Weston family to take charge of Selfridges' food offering.

Seven years later, he arrived at Fortnum’s as CEO, prompting current Fortnum’s chairman Kate Hobhouse to confidently claim that "Ewan's passion, expertise and fresh thinking will help take Fortnum & Mason into the next stage of growth."

Since then, that confidence has been well-placed – and under Ewan’s continued leadership, Fortnum’s looks set to continue its remarkable success.

We're helping The Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and UKHarvest raise £2 million to transform lives and cook a ‘thank-you’ banquet for 100s of everyday heroes. It’s called the CEO CookOff. It’s going to be epic. Posted by Ewan, Saturday 14th Jan

I'm participating in the 2017 CEO CookOff, in partnership with the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation and UKHarvest. This incredible fundraising event will see the nation’s top CEOs and senior business leaders join forces with first-class chefs to cook a banquet for 100s of everyday heroes who work in our schools and hospitals, as a thank you for their amazing work.

Between now and the night itself, we’re also working towards an amazing £2 million fundraising target, which will be used to tackle food waste and provide food education to people throughout the UK. The funds raised will be donated to food waste charity UKHarvest and will be used by the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation to support food education schemes.

I'd love your support.

A big thank you to My Sponsors

The real heroes who are kindly supporting me achieve my goal.
