Move sees new head of the Americas with responsibilities across foodservice, laundry and beverage for North, Central, and South America
Electrolux Professional has announced a series of personnel changes in order “to help fully integrate the Grindmaster-Cecilware team into the Electrolux Professional organization and align the new organization for focused growth”.
Electrolux acquired Grindmaster-Cecilware in March 2017 and the company reports it has been “working diligently to best leverage the talents and strengths” of both companies.
To reflect this, John Evans has been promoted to head of the Americas with responsibilities across foodservice, laundry and beverage for North, Central, and South America.
Greg Immell will lead a new business development team for North America which will include technical sales and national accounts across the categories.
Meanwhile, Rick Burr will head up the field sales team for Electrolux Professional’s beverage business in North America under the brands of Grindmaster, Cecilware, Crathco, and American Metal Ware.
Mark Ortiz will continue to lead the foodservice team with additional responsibilities for the project consulting team.
The company has also announced additional organization changes, which have been made to “strengthen synergies across categories of business” in its marketing, logistics, customer service and finance teams.
“In elevating our team with new cross-functional responsibilities, we expect to accelerate and deliver even greater business results,” says Evans.
“Our most valuable asset is our people. Moving forward, our new leadership team will identify opportunities for collaboration, coaching, and improvements to bring the best experience for our customers.”
