Chris Jones has been promoted to group managing director as the Lincat MD takes the reins at IMC and Britannia.
The move to promote Jones to oversee all three firms follows the departure of Steve Witt last month.
Witt joined IMC in 2001 as a design engineer before managing the company’s service and engineering departments.
After assuming responsibility for the management and growth of IMC’s OEM business he was promoted to technical director following the acquisition of IMC by Middleby Corporation in 2011.
IMC, Britannia and Lincoln-based firm Lincat are all part of the Middleby group.
New group MD, Jones, commented on the appointment, he said: “It’s been a fantastic first year at the helm of Lincat and I’m immensely proud of everything we have achieved. My next challenge is to grow sales and profits at IMC and Britannia through the development of new products.”
He added: “The expansion into new markets and an increase in market share. I’m excited about my new role and what the future holds for IMC and Britannia.”
