Smeg is sponsoring the business leaders category of Catering Insight’s inaugural Power List supplement.
The Power List will be published alongside the July issue of Catering Insight and will profile 50 top distributor personalities.
Smeg’s supported category, business leaders, will highlight those who deserve to be recognised for their dynamism and direction. It is one of five categories, the others being: project pioneers – sponsored by Manitowoc, young trailblazers – supported by PFR, unsung heroes, in association with the First Choice Group and industry innovators, supported by European WaterCare.
Phil Coulstock, Smeg’s commercial channel director, commented: “Smeg instantly wanted to be involved in sponsoring the business leaders category of the Power List when we learnt that it was to reward the most focused and driven pioneers of the UK distributor market.
“For many years the UK distributors have inspired and driven manufacturers to improve the way they trade and the products they sell making them the most valuable asset and business partners to all manufacturers across the globe in the foodservice sector and we look forward to supporting the recognition of those driven individuals.
“Within the Smeg organisation we are great believers of taking inspiration and ideas from the employees and it has proven very successful in the rise of the family owned lifestyle brand since 1948. Identifying the business leaders of the UK distributor market will not only reward and acknowledge them for their efforts but also hopefully continue a UK tradition in producing great innovation and business standards for a long time into the future.”
