Phil Williams added EFCEM president to his list of roles.

CESA council member and Victor Manufacturing MD Phil Williams has been elected as president of the European Federation of Catering Equipment Manufacturers (EFCEM).

He commented: “I’m delighted to have been appointed as president of EFCEM – to represent catering suppliers and manufacturers from the UK and Europe on a global scale is a real honour.

“I feel hugely passionate about lobbying governments to introduce legislative changes across our industry, in order to develop and specify new directives and ensure organisations across worldwide catering markets are collaborating to develop and adhere to the same European and global standards.”

Looking ahead, he detailed: “One of my first major roles as president will be to represent EFCEM at the Annual Global Summit in Milan in October 2019.

“This will provide a fantastic opportunity for national associations from across the world to gather and discuss how we can all work together more closely from similar platforms to improve legislation and standards across our various industries to aid international trading across the various continents – I’m really looking forward the challenges ahead.”

This appointment follows last month’s announcement that Williams completed a management buyout of Victor, having been with the display and hot holding specialist for almost 20 years.
