Lincat has appointed Christian Jones to the new role of distributor sales director.
Jones joined the catering equipment manufacturer in 2010 as regional sales manager for the South and South West regions.
Since 2013, he has worked as group national account manager.
In his new role Jones will be responsible for the development of sales through Lincat’s network of UK distributors, and the Lincat regional sales manager team will report to him.
At the same time, Rob Gibson, Lincat’s sales director, will take up the new role of sales and marketing director.
His new, twin focus will be the development of national accounts and marketing. He will also assume responsibility for the export and spare parts sales teams.
Nick McDonald, MD of Lincat, said: “In Rob and Chris, we are fortunate to have two hugely effective and successful sales professionals.
“This strengthening of our board level commercial team underlines our commitment to driving strong sales growth for our Lincat and FriFri brands across all sectors.”
