Lincat has appointed Sev Uzar as its regional sales manager for Scotland and Northwest England.
Uzar previously worked for Nisbets, spending seven years as a sales manager at the Bristol-based catering equipment distributor. Part of his role involved supplying Lincat products to restaurants and caterers.
Before joining the catering equipment community, Uzar served as food and beverage manager at the Marriott Hotel in Sheffield.
“Having worked for a distributor for many years I can see it from both sides and I hope to hit the ground running,” he said.
In his new role Sev will work closely with Lincat’s extensive network of dealers to provide support for end-users.
Tony Aston, Lincat’s UK sales director, added: “Having worked with one of our distributors for such a long time he brings a wealth of experience to the role and he has a real passion about the foodservice industry.”
