London-based distributor Millers Catering Equipment is making moves as part of an ambitious growth strategy.
This year the firm appointed Jim Wyatt as sales director, with a remit to expand the company’s presence in the capital.
Wyatt is experienced in similar business to business sales roles, starting his career as a salesman for a photocopier business where, over time, he progressed to become a sales director and part owner.
In selling this business to a PLC he continued to build the business under the new ownership structure with fellow directors.
During the 90s, Wyatt took a new position within a very small vending business, and his primary role was to develop a sales force to achieve a national coverage.
His skill set has always been face-to-face sales, reacting to customer needs and providing the best service possible.
Millers MD Dean Broadbent praised: “Jim has enjoyed much success developing sales professionals and over the years has built very strong sales teams. As a team, he developed the vending business from one office in Sussex to be a national service and sales supplier with an annual turnover in excess of £20m.”
He further revealed: “Jim will focus on extending the Millers sales presence throughout London and starting to build a bigger sales team. The Millers Group is looking to grow by 20% per annum following the pandemic, which we navigated very well, and we are confident that Jim can help deliver this.
“Millers Group sees the 2022 as a pivotal year in its growth plan with a vision of both acquisition and organic growth. Other key appointments will be made over the coming months, underlining our ambition to become one of the most sizable distributors in the market.”
