People: 200 Degrees Coffee; Acres Architects

Will Kenney

Nottingham-headquartered coffee roaster and wholesaler 200 Degrees Coffee has hired Will Kenney as commercial director.

Kenney brings with him 20 years of experience in the coffee sector.

At 200 Degrees, his responsibilities include managing and driving all commercial aspects of the business, particularly its wholesale offer and the online sale of beans and coffee machines.

Kenney said: “Since the first 200 Degrees coffee shop opened seven years ago, I have admired the company from afar – watching as it expanded from its Nottingham base to new locations, into wholesale and e-commerce markets and evolving into the much-loved household name that it is today.

“From an industry observer, to a member of the 200 Degrees family, it’s great to be joining a passionate bunch of people driven by a love of coffee and hospitality. They’re dedicated to ensuring good coffee is accessible far and wide through multiple channels.”

He said: “I’m very pleased to have joined the Acres team. There are already a number of very exciting projects in the pipeline and I can’t wait to get started.”

Founder and managing director Edward Acres added: “I’m very pleased Tony has joined the team. He brings a wealth of knowledge and experience and I have no doubt he’ll be a valuable member of the team.”
