When it comes to managing the customer-facing sales team at Meiko, Steve really does tick all the right boxes."
Evans, who joins Meiko UK on the 2 September, added: "Opportunities like this don't come that often and I am very happy to be joining the Meiko UK leadership team. The attraction of Meiko UK is that it is all about quality. The company has a great reputation for its products, customer service and, increasingly, for its environmental awareness."
Meanwhile, Meiko's specification manager, Mick Jary (pictured below) has been chosen as the new allied member for the EAME (Europe and Middle East) region of the Foodservice Consultants Society International (FCSI).
Jary will represent the voice of the catering manufacturers to the boards of FCSI EAME and FCSI Worldwide.
"It is a huge honour to be voted onto the EAME and FCSI Worldwide Boards by fellow manufacturers and Allied Members," said Jary.
"My election statement for this role, circulated to FCSI Consultant members and Allied Members, revolved around education, joint marketing exercises and the ease of information transfer in a constantly changing world. This will be central to my involvement as it will help promote the ethics the FCSI, raise the profile of the FCSI community and can only further business opportunities for all."
