HTG Trading, the owner of Hubbard Systems and Taylor UK, has announced major changes to its senior management structure.
Simon Aspin, currently commercial director of Hubbard, is set to become managing director of HTG from 1 January 2018 and at the same time Taylor's commercial director, Pete Gray, will become managing director of Taylor. Martin Wood will step down from his role as chief executive of HTG Trading to become non-executive chair of the company.
HTG's subsidiaries look after many of the UK's leading foodservice equipment brands and are known for the quality of their customer service and support. Hubbard Systems is the exclusive UK distributor of Scotsman icemakers and Comenda warewashers. Taylor UK is exclusive distributor for Taylor frozen drinks and dessert machines and clamshell grills, Frigomat ice cream equipment, and Prática combi ovens, as well as being the principal UK distributor of ISA refrigerated displays and Turbochef ovens.
"HTG's succession planning in recent years has been focused on developing internal candidates for senior management positions," said Wood. "We believe that the arrangements that are in place will allow the company to continue its successful growth path."
