Combi and bakery oven supplier Unox has strengthened its team with the appointment of a sales manager to look after its dealer business in the north of the UK.
Nathan Bland has joined the company from warewashing manufacturer Winterhalter, where he worked for 10 years, with a remit to increase brand awareness and grow Unox’s business with distributor partners.
The position is a completely new one that Unox hasn’t had before and is designed to help the company bolster its business with key accounts in the north.
“Having spent most of his life in the industry, Nathan has a vast knowledge base of dealers and how traditional dealer business is done,” said Unox’s UK managing director Gary Nunn. “His previous role with Winterhalter obviously allowed him the opportunity to extend these skills dealing with large national accounts.”
While the emphasis of the role will involve developing business with key dealers working on projects, Nunn said Unox is also keen to form relationships with “serious professional dealers” that wish to join its network.
Bland added: “For me to move to another manufacturer was a huge decision. Obviously having been at Winterhalter for over 10 years I have built up a great deal of credibility in the industry. Therefore it needed to be something fresh, exciting and a great product.”
