The Maryland based manufacturer of commercial Artisan Brick Oven Cooking Solutions, has hired the former vice president of Singer Equipment Company
Marra Forni, the Beltsville, Maryland-based manufacturer of commercial artisan brick oven cooking solutions, has appointed Todd Griffith as vice president of sales & marketing. Reporting to Francesco Marra, president, and CEO, Griffith will serve as a member of the company’s leadership team and will be responsible for the development and execution of the company’s global sales and marketing strategies.
Griffith comes to Marra Forni with a strong foodservice background and many relationships built over the past 25+ years in the industry. Most recently he served as vice president with Singer Equipment Company, one of the country’s largest commercial foodservice equipment and supplies distributors. Prior to that, he held a variety of sales and marketing leadership roles throughout a 20-year career with Alto-Shaam, Inc.
Strongly recognized brand
“I couldn’t be more excited about working with the Marra Family,” says Griffith. “In a relatively short timespan, Marra Forni has created a strongly recognized brand in both US and International markets. Their products are best defined as quality, innovative, customizable, and completely unique; that point where artisan and technology intersect. It’s also inspiring when the ownership of an organization are as passionate about their products and services as Francesco and Enzo are.”
“Our company is at that point where we needed an experienced and respected professional to lead our growth into the future. Timing and opportunity presented themselves,” says Marra.
“We’re excited to have Todd as a new member of our family and looking forward to his future contributions to our company. I believe that we are a great fit for each other.”
