Foodservice Equipment Marketing (FEM) has expanded its team by hiring Simon Bennett as its new sales manager.
Bennett has extensive experience of the foodservice equipment industry having spent 12 years at Reading-based Global Foodservice Equipment and four years at Lockhart Catering Equipment.
His primary role will be to develop and promote FEM’s range of products through key national chain accounts and provide support to distributor partners.
“FEM has always worked with top quality equipment brands and having spent 16 years as a customer I have experienced how important this is, enabling me to now provide the service and support distributors and customers require,” he said.
Glasgow-based FEM has partnership agreements with numerous brands in both smallwares and equipment, including Alto-Shaam, Vollrath, Manitowoc Ice, Cambro, Sirman, Prince Castle, San Jamar and Hamilton Beach.
Jim Doherty, sales director at FEM, said Bennett would bring a wealth of knowledge to the role. “He will be a great asset to FEM and will allow us to increase our presence with national accounts through our distributor partners,” said Doherty.
