Sanremo UK has appointed former Compass Group innovation chief Steve Lovegrove as its new sales director.
Lovegrove has spent many years in the coffee industry, including the last five at Compass, where he headed up its coffee and café brands.
Prior to that, he spent a number of years with Starbucks, working both in the UK and at its corporate office in Seattle.
Andrew Tucker, managing director at Sanremo UK, said Lovegrove’s breadth of experience and skills would be an asset to the business.
“I’m sure Steve will make an immediate impact on our business as we continue to develop and grow across the UK and Ireland. I am excited about working with Steve over the coming months as we push ahead with more new product launches planned over the coming year.”
Sanremo espresso machines are built by hand in Treviso, northern Italy. The brand is renowned for technical innovation, striking finish and distinctive design.
Precise temperature and pressure control combined with the energy savings they offer have proved popular with operators looking for advanced coffee systems.
