Welbilt has appointed Jean-Paul Roudier as vice president of sales for the EMEA region.
This role will allow him to build on the success that he has achieved within the Middle East African market, where he helped deliver substantial growth to the business. Roudier will assume responsibility for sales and distribution strategy in the entire EMEA region.
He has over 5 years direct foodservice experience after joining Welbilt as vice president of sales for emerging markets back in 2012 where he established sales operations in India and led sales teams in Russia and the Commonwealth of Independent States.
Since 2013 he has held direct responsibility for the Middle East Africa region where he has reportedly helped achieve significant growth in what is a challenging market. Prior to joining Welbilt, Roudier held senior leadership roles in finance and HR for Groupe Danone in France.
In this new role, he will aim to continue to drive strong marketing and sales performance through the development of a strong team, whilst strengthening existing and new customer relationships in order to achieve Welbilt’s sales growth goals.
Phil Dei Dolori, senior vice president and MD for Welbilt, EMEA and APAC commented: “We’re delighted to appoint Jean-Paul as Welbilt’s vice president of sales for EMEA. He brings exceptional skill, understanding and knowledge of sales to the EMEA sales team and has helped achieve significant growth within challenging regions and emerging markets. We’d all like to congratulate Jean-Paul on his new role and wish him every success.”
