Kitchen storage manufacturer Hupfer has promoted Anthony Pettit to head of sales less than a year after joining the roster at the company’s UK base.
He joined the company in August last year when he was employed as business development manager to grow sales and accounts for Hupfer’s UK market, as well as at subsidiary company, Trak.
Bringing with him over 10 years’ experience, Pettit has reportedly since made a huge impact on sales and operations within both Hupfer and Trak, opening up the German-owned companies to wider customers and relationships within the UK foodservice market. These results have led to his new role as UK head of sales.
Philipp Schumacher, a director of both the UK Hupfer operation and Trak, said: “Since Anthony joined our team last summer he has hit the ground running. His previous experience and connections within the industry have allowed him to grow our accounts and achieve ambitious sales targets.
“All of the team here at Hupfer and Trak are thrilled to see Anthony promoted to head of sales, it is a position that he thoroughly deserves and we are sure that he will flourish and continue to bring expertise and enthusiasm to our operation.”
Pettit joined Hupfer and Trak during a period of redevelopment when the two companies were being rebranded from TrakHupfer, to give the UK market a clear understanding of how the two differ.
He said: “I am thrilled to have taken on this new position with Hupfer and Trak, it is great to see that the strategies and hard work that I have implemented since joining have paid off – I am excited to see how we can grow further over the next 12 months.
“Our mission here is always to develop the relationships we hold with dealers across the UK catering equipment industry and we strive to ensure that we are continually offering them the support they need. We have just become the most recent CEDA Platinum Partner, another investment which has been made to support dealers across the country.”
