Each week we will feature a member of staff across all areas of the school including teachers, admin staff, support staff and more, to get to know members of our school family a little better. Our profile this week is Grant Forbes Reid, the new Operations Manager at our catering provider ADNH Compass.

I would like to take this opportunity to introduce myself as the new Operations Manager for ADNH Compass at BIS Abu Dhabi, taking over from Chloe who is completing her time in the Middle East with Compass Group.

Originally from Scotland, I grew up in a small tourist village in Perthshire, where I worked in the Hospitality Industry from a young age. After completing my education, I embarked on a now 20-year Food & Beverage Hospitality Management career in the UK, South Africa and the Middle East.

I bring to BIS Abu Dhabi 9 years of experience in Abu Dhabi, initially with Rotana & Marriott Hotel chains. Most recently, before joining ADNH Compass, I was overseeing the Catering operations for Aldar Academies / ADNOC Schools across the Abu Dhabi Region. Now with ADNH Compass I have moved from our NYUAD division to oversee BIS Abu Dhabi.

I look forward to working with the great ADNH Compass team here, and continue to grow the strong position Chloe has left. I am also extremely excited to work in conjunction with the entire team here at BIS Abu Dhabi as we continue to move forward.
