July is set to herald a restructuring of Commercial Catering Spares’ sales team as the company looks to ramp up its business in the second half of the year.
The Lancashire-based spare parts provider is carrying out some changes that will become effective from next week, including adding more technical resources to its sales team and strengthening the refrigeration part of its business, which it says is “steadily growing”.
One of the major changes will be the promotion of Simon Brown into the new role of national sales manager, with Luke Harden joining the team to fill the role of sales representative for the North.
Brown has been with CCS for nine years and will now oversee Harden and Chris Furnival, who runs the South, as well as retaining some of his key accounts and new business developments.
Harden is well-versed in the spares market having previously worked for CCS’ technical team. As well as the north of England, he will look after customers in Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Meanwhile, CCS has vowed to step up its activities in the refrigeration space.
Lee Mitchell, who joined the company six months ago and has 20 years’ experience as a refrigeration engineer, will be given license to spend more time in the market visiting customers, with Ryan Forde appointed to provide additional support on that side of the business.
Forde currently works in a sales role at CCS, but his new role will have a stronger emphasis on the technical aspect of refrigeration.
July will also see the return of Paula Robinson to the company following a spell away on maternity leave. She will provide support to the sales and customer service teams.
“This new structure will help CCS build on the success that has been achieved so far despite the challenges of the current market,” said the company’s managing director Jonathan Booth.
