He moved across to the catering equipment side of the sector after honing his culinary skills in executive chef positions at Everton FC and Wigan FC.

Finney said: “I’m extremely excited to join SLM to assist further growth on what has already been a successful year. We have some fantastic clients currently who we have built strong relationships with and are excited to be expanding our client base further in the coming weeks.

“My previous experience and background from both an end user culinary aspect and from the manufacturer/distributor angle fits in extremely well in the service SLM offers to its clients.”

SLM assists operators in all areas within a commercial kitchen from operational recommendations, design, specification, procurement and install of investment work through to a consultancy service aimed at driving efficiency and improved food quality.

Munro said: “I’m extremely excited to have someone of the calibre of Mark join us at SLM. He’s an extremely knowledgeable guy and well-thought of amongst his peers in the industry.

“The culinary backed experience coupled with a detailed understanding of equipment solutions that our end user clients are seeking further backs the service we provide. I’m sure Mark will be a huge success.”
