US foodservice and plumbing equipment supplier T&S Brass has hired a new executive to run its sales operations in Europe.
Bert Dittmar joins the firm as director of European sales having spent his career in foodservice sales and marketing.
He most recently served as director of global sales for porcelain firm Kahla Thuringen Porzellan, where he was instrumental in restructuring the company’s professional division and leading product marketing and development.
He also spent more than a decade at Cambro Manufacturing where, as director of sales in Europe, he worked on strategic marketing planning and sourcing projects.
T&S’ director of international sales, Bill Stella, said: “Bert not only brings us years of experience from the European market, but he has a great sense of how markets perform worldwide.”
In his new role, Dittmar will oversee sales of T&S products to European customers, managing all aspects of marketing for the region, and developing and maintaining the company’s distributor network. He will be based in Berlin, Germany.
T&S produces a wide range of components relevant to commercial kitchens including hose reels, pre-rinse units, filters, faucets and kettle caddies.
