Food Service Holdings (FSH), comprised of BSI, English Manufacturing and Colorado Custom Stone, has named Mark Fogarty as regional sales manager, effective June 3, 2020. Acquired in 2016 by Levine Leichtman Capital Partners, FSH is the leading manufacturer of food shields and comprehensive front of the house servery, counters and custom fabricated solutions.
Fogarty was appointed to the role after an extensive search, having recently stepped down from his role as national sales manager for American Panel to embark on this new opportunity. He will be responsible for managing manufacturer representation, E&S dealer and design consultant relationships for the Eastern Region. Andrew Padden will transition to regional sales manager for the Western Region.
A wealth of expertise
Fogarty is an 18-year veteran of the foodservice industry and brings with him a wealth of expertise, first as an outside sales representative for Edward Don, then later as a business development catalyst across the equipment and manufacturing verticals within the supplier sector at Wells Bloomfield, Desmon Refrigeration and most recently, American Panel.
“I am very fortunate to get to work with the Industry’s best, all the while creating lifelong memories and friends,” says Fogarty. “When not working, cooking is a big passion of mine. If I’m not cooking, I’m watching someone cook on Food Network. I am very excited about this next chapter of my career,” he says.
“FSH is thrilled to have Mark join our sales team and larger organization. His multifaceted experience and industry knowledge are precisely what we were seeking as a welcome and timely addition to our team,” says Stephanie Gilbert, VP of sales & marketing, Food Service Holdings.
