Mark Finney has joined FEM as sales manager for Scotland and north England.
An experienced foodservice professional, he has worked both as a chef and in equipment sales, most recently as sales director for Rational.
He will have a diverse role at FEM: as well as developing business with the distributor network and key national accounts, he will be using his culinary background to help dealers and end user customers get the best product for their needs.
Finney is 51 and has worked all his life in the foodservice industry. He commented: “Joining FEM is a great opportunity for me. It’s a company that manages to be both dynamic and friendly, and the diversity of the product range, with so many well-known brands, is very exciting.”
Having been a consultant, a catering manager and an executive chef – for, amongst other organisations, Everton and Wigan Athletic FC – he is looking forward to putting his kitchen knowhow at the service of customers. “It’s energising to be working with innovative manufacturers such as Alto Shaam, Prince Castle and Vollrath,” he said.
“My new job with FEM is another step up the ladder for me. I’m really looking forward to meeting lots of different customers and distributors – as well as getting back in touch with some old friends in the industry.”
Sales director Jim Doherty added: “He brings so much in terms of expertise and ability, he’s got a great attitude and is going to be a real asset for us.”
