Scott Heim has been named president of Middleby Ventless Solutions. In this position he will lead the efforts of all of the Middleby commercial brands with ventless cooking solutions. His responsibilities will include sales and marketing, new product development and approvals as well as the development of training tools. Heim will continue in his role as president of Evo America.

“Scott is a leading industry authority on ventless commercial kitchen solutions. He has educated many on how to offer high-quality, commercial cooking in non-traditional locations, which is becoming more and more common,” said Tim FitzGerald, CEO of Middleby.

“Since Scott joined Middleby last year through the acquisition of Evo, he has been working with many of our customers on a variety of ventless concepts across all of our brands, while also incorporating QualServ manufacturing for the kitchen build when appropriate. This is a growing trend in our industry and we are excited Scott will be leading this charge.”

Capability and experience

Middleby ventless equipment includes product from Evo, TurboChef, Blodgett, PerfectFry, Wells, CookTek and others to meet the needs of any concept. QualServ Solutions, a Middleby manufacturing company, has the capability and experience to build an efficient ventless kitchen and will be part of projects as well.

Heim joined Evo in 2012 and since that time has successfully led an effort of ventless education and acceptance in the commercial cooking industry. At Evo he has directed product development work in the ventless griddle, plancha and cooktop segments. The company launched the patented EVent® ventless griddle in 2015 prior to the company joining Middleby at the end of 2018. Under Heim’s leadership Evo was named one of Oregon’s 100 fastest-growing private companies for three consecutive years.

Prior to joining Evo, Heim created a consumer packaged goods firm which was successful in a competitive retail market. Before that he was president of the America’s division of Delsey Luggage & Leather Goods, which expanded innovative wheeled luggage in the 1990’s. Prior to his time at Delsey, he spent eight years at The Dow Chemical Company and was the Marketing Director for Ziploc, Summerfield’s and Saran Wrap brands.
