Steve Montgomery has been appointed as the new MD at Bunzl Lockhart Catering Equipment following the departure of Paul Nieduszynski for a new senior role at the Brakes group.
Montgomery was previously Lockhart’s sales director and brings much experience to the role, having formerly also been MD of Lockhart’s Design Services business. He takes over the running of the business with immediate effect.
Commenting on his new appointment, he said: “I am absolutely thrilled to be taking over as MD at Lockhart at a genuinely very exciting time in the company’s history.
“We have a number of major new initiatives for 2019 that we will be unveiling over the course of the next few weeks and I am confident that these will help to strengthen both Lockhart’s capabilities as a business and the range of products and services that we are able to offer our customers.”
He added: “I would like to thank Paul Ski for the fantastic job he has done in transforming the business over the last 5 years and I intend to build on the tremendous proposition and culture that he has created during that time.”
Lockhart recently displayed its portfolio of over 20,000 products at The Restaurant Show as part of its ‘Catering Equipment Expo’ event which the company organise in conjunction with 50 of its key suppliers.
