Lincat has appointed national account sales specialist, Donna Brown, as its new national account manager.
Brown joins Lincat from the beverage sector, where she has worked in equipment sales for over 28 years, latterly as regional sales director for Pelican Rouge Coffee Solutions. In that role, she managed a team of seven who, together, were responsible for sales across the hotel, restaurant, catering and healthcare sectors.
Mike Woodman, UK national sales manager of Lincat, commented: “When it comes to the development of national accounts, both in the foodservice and cost sectors, Donna’s track record is second to none. Able to nurture established partnerships and forge new relationships, Donna succeeds by putting her customers’ needs first and adding real value.
“National account business is growing strongly here at Lincat thanks, in particular, to the successful introduction of our Opus 800 range of prime cooking equipment. Donna has established contacts, fantastic sector experience, people management skills, drive and enthusiasm, and I’m confident she will be a great success in this critical role.”
Brown is looking forward to the new challenge, adding: “It was great to lead the team which took the Zenith Ward Beverage Trolley to the number one position in the healthcare sector, in terms of UK sales.
“I have always admired Lincat equipment for its design, build quality and reliability, and I am looking forward to telling customers old and new all about it.”
