US-based pizza oven manufacturer Marra Forni has appointed Todd Griffith as vice president of sales and marketing.
Griffith comes to company with more than 25 years of experience in the foodservice industry. Most recently he served as vice president with US distributor Singer Equipment Company. Prior to that, he held a variety of sales and marketing leadership roles throughout a 20-year career with Alto-Shaam.
Reporting to Marra Forni’s president and CEO, Francesco Marra, Griffith will serve as a member of the company’s leadership team and will be responsible for the development and execution of the company’s global sales and marketing strategies.
He stated: “I couldn’t be more excited about working with the Marra family. In a relatively short time span, Marra Forni has created a strongly recognised brand in both US and international markets. Their products are best defined as quality, innovative, customisable, and completely unique; that point where artisan and technology intersect. It’s also inspiring when the ownership of an organisation are as passionate about their products and services as Francesco and Enzo are.”
Marra commented: “Our company is at that point where we needed an experienced and respected professional to lead our growth into the future. Timing and opportunity presented themselves. We’re excited to have Todd as a new member of our family and looking forward to his future contributions to our company. I believe that we are a great fit for each other.”
Marra Forni manufactures a full line of brick oven cooking products and solutions to the commercial foodservice industry, with operations in Beltsville and Elkridge, Maryland.
