Cooking equipment manufacturer Falcon has appointed Peter McAllister as its new MD, following Tim Tindle’s departure at the end of 2017.
McAllister has extensive industry experience, having held senior roles in several other major companies. He joins as Falcon gears up to celebrate its bicentennial – the company first started operating in 1819.
He commented: “I’m looking forward to building on the Falcon success story. It’s a first class company with a great history and a great future.
“These are exciting times: we have a very strong team, our markets are expanding, both at home and overseas, and we have new products in development that will underline our brand strengths.”
McAllister joins Falcon from Havelock Europa, an interiors manufacturing and fit-out company, where he was chief operating officer. Previously he worked with well-known firms such as Oracle & Sun Microsystems, Oki, Alexander Dennis and Clyde Union.
Tim Smith, CEO of Falcon’s parent company AFE Group, said: “We’re delighted to appoint someone of Peter’s calibre. He has a record of building profits, an engaging leadership style, and the experience and expertise to help us realise Falcon’s full potential and maximise business in a highly competitive market.”
