The board of ScoMac Catering Equipment has promoted Steve Shepherd from operations director to MD of the distributor, with immediate effect.
Shepherd has spent over 10 years in the operations director role, taking over the day to day running of the ScoMac Livingston operation in 2012, before adding the Cambridge and Leeds branches management when Iain Munro exited as MD in 2017.
Nick Imlah, chairman of ScoMac Catering Equipment and the Unitech Group said: “Steve has worked tremendously hard to expand the business and created an incredibly successful team around him. He has truly earnt this accolade.”
Shepherd added: “I’m very grateful for the trust the group and my staff have given me. The title MD as we have all discussed is just that, a title.
“We find ourselves in the middle of a very busy year and look forward to a successful Q3 and 4 whilst making plans already for the coming years.”
He concluded: “The responsibilities for guiding us forward whilst dealing with the day to day challenges have always been there for my team and I, so it’s not time to put my feet up yet.”
