Jestic Foodservice Equipment has appointed Steven Lamb as new bakery product manager to complement increased investment in the bakery sector.
Bringing knowledge and experience of both bread and pastry baking to the role, Lamb previously worked at Benier UK and has managed national accounts in the industrial and craft bakery sector.
His experience also incorporates establishing and managing successful independent bakeries across the midlands.
He commented: “To join a company such as Jestic is an extremely exciting opportunity for me.
“I’m confident that the ability to utilise my experience and apply my in-depth knowledge of the bakery sector will assist the business in establishing itself in this vibrant sector, and very much look forward to working as part of this forward thinking company.”
Jestic MD Steve Loughton added: “In bringing Steven’s expertise to the team, we are able to maintain our level of innovation to commercial bakery, one of our newer product sectors, and offering that to our customers is crucial in order to adhere to the Jestic ethos of ongoing excellent service.”
As one of his first responsibilities, Lamb will be working closely with Jestic’s design team to expand upon the company’s existing development kitchen, which is set to be extended to include a dedicated menu development area and testing facility for bakery customers.
Jestic has exclusive UK distribution rights for Scandinavian bakery equipment specialists Sveba Dahlen and Glimek.
