Hobart UK has announced the alignment of its Warewash and Cooking divisions into one single sales and administrative operation to be known as the Hobart Equipment Division.
The focus now is to leverage new commercial opportunities and to develop and strengthen relationships with all external partners and create a larger and more effective sales force to increase, improve and strengthen the number of active sales contacts across the whole market.
New appointments within the sales development team will also enable Hobart UK to offer stronger support to its key customers and distribution partners and facilitate a mutually beneficial relationship.
The new organisation will be run by the existing directors, with David Riley continuing as managing director. Iain Munro takes on the wider role of business development director encompassing the national account team, the projects department and the newly appointed product specialists. His responsibilities will include raising awareness and specification of the Hobart product portfolio via consultants and design houses, from drawing board to final supply and in close cooperation with distribution partners.
Tim Bender maintains his role as sales director with the regional operations including Hobart Independent, continuing to report to him.
