Meet Our Team

Charles Cryer

Charles Cryer

Chairman

I’m Charles and I’m field fare’s Chairman. Still at school when my late father, Richard, started the company 40 years ago, I watched it grow from small beginnings in a barn in Kent, (where I used to help out in my summer holidays), into a business with customers nationwide. I am proud to continue my family’s tradition of selling good quality frozen food. Married with two sons, I live and work in London.

Managing Director

I started working with Richard and Ann Cryer at field fare in 2001, becoming Managing Director in 2004, and have enjoyed every minute of it. It is fair to say that running field fare keeps me rather busy as do my two sons. Over the past few years, it has been rewarding to see the company and its product range grow, none of which could have occurred without the great team that I have around me. Luckily, we all have the same philosophy – work hard but try to have fun in the process.

Regional Account Manager

I am the Regional Account Manager for the South of England covering from Surrey to Cornwall, the West side of England up to Shropshire and South Wales.
Prior to working for field fare, I had a long career in catering, both here and overseas, before moving into sales. I am a foodie at heart (see my waistline!). I enjoy cooking along with the obligatory glass of wine of course – hic! To counteract this, I also enjoy DIY and walking in the “Zummerzet” countryside where we moved to in 2012!

I also cover the whole of East Anglia up to Leicester and the East Midlands.I have been with the company since 2001, in a number of roles starting with administration, shop manager and for the last 10 years Regional Account Manager. I really enjoy this role as it brings different challenges to my work every day. If I had a nickname, it would be The Chatty Man as I love to talk – something I am sure a great number of my customers would agree with!

I’ve been the Sales and Marketing Administrator at field fare since 2005. I particularly enjoy contact with our customers across the United Kingdom, on a daily basis, on the phone and on Twitter most of whom I’ve got to know quite well over the years. I also design the newsletters, marketing and promotional literature and deal with daily sales administration. I love photography and keeping fit.

As Accounts Administrator, I look after all things financial plus anything else that gets thrown my way during the course of a busy day. I’ve been with field fare since 2005. I have one teenage son, who is a budding heavy metal drummer (hmmm thanks for that!). I, myself, am passionate about music and in my spare time can be found teaching/playing clarinet and saxophone.
