Rep group brings Ian Houldsworth out of retirement


Longstanding member of the catering equipment community, Ian Houldsworth, is going to work with Pro Foodservice Reps (PFR), the new catering equipment ‘rep group’ offering manufacturers sales and marketing representation to the industry.

Houldsworth retired as MD of Sammic Ltd in 2014, having worked for the company for over 20 years. With a total of over 30 years in the industry, he will be well-known to many, and PFR’s MD Andy Piggin and sales director Ross Gibson are enthusiastic about accessing this knowledge and experience.

When Houldsworth retired, he was keen to continue to work in the industry and support other organisations. PFR has strong plans for growth, and he is looking forward to supporting it in those plans.

PFR is establishing a model that is pretty unique in the UK, but which has been successful in the US for a number of years, and all concerned are excited about the opportunities that this presents.

Gibson commented: “Ian is an excellent addition to the PFR team. He is exactly the calibre of individual that we wanted to recruit. We have plans to expand further with individuals well known and respected within the catering equipment industry.”

Houldsworth will assist PFR promoting its partner brands products exclusively via catering equipment distributors.
