FEA has announced several changes to its board. Paul Anderson, MD of Meiko UK, is to become vice chair of FEA and chair of the revenue and marketing committee.
Anderson was previously chair of FEA’s warewashing group, a role that will now be taken by Glenn Roberts, who is sales director at Winterhalter.
The moves come as a result of the imminent departure of FEA’s current vice chair, Simon Lohse, to pastures new. The MD of Rational UK is leaving to take up a new position as head of Rational’s operations in the Americas.
Steve Hobbs, chair of FEA, said: “It’s been a pleasure to work with Simon and I’m sorry to see him go. His commitment and energy have been invaluable. Of course, this is a really exciting opportunity for him and everyone at FEA wishes him the very best for the future.
“Meanwhile I’m delighted that Paul has agreed to take over Simon’s roles at FEA. He’s one of the most experienced foodservice equipment professionals in the industry and I know he’ll do a brilliant job. Similarly, Glenn’s expertise and know-how make him the perfect replacement as chair of the warewashing group.”
The changes will take place over summer 2021.
