Chris Tough

Coffee Buyer

Chris joined the Lincoln & York team in July 2018 as Marketing Manager, where his role included everything from organisation and execution of our trade shows to relaunching the L&Y website and design and implementation of marketing collateral, right through to supporting our customers with marketing tools and data insight. 

After almost 3 years of managing and growing our Marketing department, Chris had well and truly fallen in love with the world of coffee and wanted to take his career in the industry to the next level. With his incredible knowledge, experience within the business and passion for coffee, Chris decided to move over to our coffee team as Coffee Buyer. Chris wanted the opportunity to delve deeper into the coffee world and felt there was nowhere else he would be given the opportunity and support to move from a marketing role into a purchasing role, like he has received here at L&Y. Chris is doing well in the new role and is excited to become a fully qualified Q Grader soon.
