Phil Walley has joined Meiko UK as regional sales manager for London and the Home Counties.
Covering North London and all of Essex and reporting to Meiko UK regional director Malcolm Pumford, Walley’s background includes working as a chef for Loch Fyne and Marriott Country Clubs, as a catering equipment distributor at Little Duffy and for an importer of specialty pasta making equipment, Fords Food Equipment.
“Phil worked for me during my days at Rational,” said Meiko UK MD Paul Anderson.
“He is a fantastic chef and comes to Meiko from a dealer background and so knows commercial kitchens and the supply industry inside and out. He is a phenomenal salesman, who is proactive in looking after his customers and he knows London and the Home Counties like the back of his hand. He will be a great asset to Meiko UK and our customers.”
Walley commented: “The opportunity of working for Meiko and alongside Paul Anderson again is a no brainer. Meiko is the premier manufacturer, with great staff who are highly respected for their professionalism.
“This is much more of an in-depth job than just selling dishwashing; besides product knowledge, it also involves advising, surveying and elements of kitchen design to help the customers achieve the best solution and that means I can build on the skills I’ve developed throughout my career.”
