Manitowoc Foodservice has hired Chris Miles to run its dealer network in the South West of the country.
The ex-Electrolux and Sprint Refrigeration man will be responsible for developing the brand’s business with distributors in a region that has also been extended to encompass Berkshire, Wiltshire, Oxfordshire and Hampshire.
Miles will also look after government customers and contracts in his capacity as a member of Manitowoc’s UK-based sales team.
“Having the pleasure to work with such established brands as Convotherm, Frymaster, Merrychef and Garland on a daily basis, was one of the main motives behind my decision to join Manitowoc,” he stated. “I look forward to working with the dealers to help promote these and other brands in the portfolio.”
Miles spent eight years at Electrolux and progressed from area sales manager to national accounts manager before joining distributor Sprint Refrigeration to handle national accounts last September.
Stephen Hemsil, national accounts manager at Manitowoc, said he hoped the appointment would help the brand strengthen its position in the market.
“Chris brings with him a wealth of experience which will be invaluable in helping to develop Manitowoc’s dealer network and customers within the South West region,” he said.
