Heywood-based dealer Vision Commercial Kitchens has appointed Jonathan Walton as a key account manager.
He brings a wealth of experience in the commercial catering industry to the role, including sales, design and project management.
Walton is from Knaresborough in North Yorkshire and went to Sheffield Hallam University, where he studied catering systems design and planning.
He went on to design catering facilities for a number of companies, then became a sales and projects manager for 11 years at YCE Catering Equipment before joining Vision in his new role.
