Following a reduction in personnel in response to reduced demand in the marketplace, Winterhalter UK and sister company Classeq have made some changes at board level that reflect a re-defined focus on their core business as they react to changing times.
The main changes see Glenn Roberts and Nick Burridge standing down from the board to focus on new roles as national sales managers. Roberts and Burridge will be responsible for direct hands-on management of the slimmer sales team as Winterhalter UK and Classeq focus on the core strengths of the brands in preparation for more developments in 2021.
Managing directors Stephen Kinkead (Winterhalter UK) and Andy Salter (Classeq) will take on the other elements of Roberts’ and Burridge’s roles respectively.
Meanwhile both Jürgen Winterhalter and Peter Huber have also stood down from the UK board. Both are still active at Winterhalter Group level, and this is an administrative change to enable the board to react swiftly to changes in the UK which are arising in light of both the current pandemic and Brexit. Ralph Winterhalter and group finance director Viktor Faller remain on the UK board.
