Welbilt brand Convotherm UK has appointed Anthony Pettit as sales manager for its newly-formed Convotherm focus team.
Driving the combi oven range with end users, key accounts, consultants and dealers, Petit has jumped straight into his new role, spending time with the culinary and sales teams to learn everything about Convotherm.
Steve Hemsil, sales director – UK and Ireland, Welbilt, said: “Anthony is going to be a great addition to our newly formed Convotherm focus team. He brings some impressive experience and contacts from the industry so we know he’s going to deliver some notable results for the Convotherm team.”
Over his career, Petit has worked as sales catering manager for Grunwerg, in category development for Brakes Group and more recently as head of business development and marketing for Trak Systems, building a comprehensive knowledge of the industry.
He commented: “I’m really excited to learn everything I can about Convotherm. There’s some incredible knowledge within the team and a brilliant new development we’re about to launch so lots to get to grips with.
“I’m also going to being heading off to the Convotherm factory in Bavaria soon to see how the equipment is built, which will be amazing and I believe it’s really important to understand just how things are made, it makes it easier to talk to customers and explain to them why Convotherm is a really great product.”
While Hemsil concluded: “Anthony’s addition to the Convotherm focus team shows our commitment to support our customers in the UK to grow the Convotherm brand while still being able to find new opportunities within the sales team to grow other Welbilt brands such as Merrychef and Crem.”
