Halton Foodservice sales chief Pete Tucker has left the company to become the sales director of Rochester-based Exoair.
The move will see him link up again with Geoff Allum, the founder of Exoair.
Tucker joined Halton when it was known as Vent Master and part of the Enodis group. It was during this time that he worked with Allum, who was running and owned Vent Master Service.
Although a standalone company, Vent Master Service was based within the head office of Vent Master, and offered full service, technical and maintenance contract back up for all Vent Master products.
Following the acquisition of Vent Master by Halton in 2005, Allum moved his business to new premises, and Exoair, the new home for Vent Master Service, was born.
As well as offering service, technical and maintenance contracts for all forms of commercial kitchen ventilation and air conditioning systems, there are several new products and developments in the pipeline.
Tucker said: “I am delighted to be able to re-establish my working relationship with Geoff. We always shared the same ethos of customer service, and desire to build long-term customer relationships.”
Allum added: “At Exoair, we are looking forward to new and exciting developments and challenges that are already beginning to happen within the company. I have known Pete for many years, he has a wealth of experience, and is trusted and well respected within the industry. Having him on board will be a great asset to our company. I believe that together we can build a strong team.”
