Meiko UK is to appoint Steve Evans as its new sales director.
MD Paul Anderson explained: “Steve is joining Meiko UK as we are experiencing a period of unprecedented growth and in advance of exciting future developments within the Meiko group that will become apparent during 2020.
“Steve has more than 20 years of sales experience. His previous roles include sales director at Nisbets where his running of the managed accounts including catering equipment distributors proved outstandingly successful. When it comes to managing the customer facing sales team at Meiko, Steve really does tick all the right boxes.”
Anderson added: “Our market is complex and evolving fast to take in increasingly important environmental issues. Steve’s understanding of how the market works and his ability to motivate, build and maintain excellent working relationships will be a great boost for our sales team and our distributor partners.”
Evans will formally be joining Meiko as UK sales director on 2 September 2019. As well as 18 years at Nisbets, he has also had stints at Lockhart Catering Equipment and Fast Food Systems.
He said: “Opportunities like this don’t come that often and I am very happy to be joining the Meiko UK leadership team.
“I have known the Meiko brand for a long time. The attraction of Meiko UK is that it is all about quality. The company has a great reputation for its products, customer service and, increasingly, for its environmental awareness.
“I personally thrive on human interaction and it is exciting to move away from a corporate environment and to get back into the front line.”
