Lincat, the Lincoln-based provider of commercial catering equipment, has appointed Paul Godfrey as Export Manager to lead its export sales function.
Mr Godfrey joins with over 21 years’ experience of the catering equipment industry. He spent 18 of those at Hobart Cooking Solutions, first as development chef before moving into a range of sales, national accounts and product management roles.
MD Chris Jones said: “Paul brings a unique and extensive combination of product knowledge, sales experience and customer understanding to the role of Export Manager.
“I am confident that he will bring all of these to bear on the challenge we have set him – which is to replicate the strong growth we have achieved here in the UK, overseas.”
Lincat equipment is currently sold in over 70 countries worldwide and export sales account for almost 13% of turnover.
Mr Godfrey said: “Developing and growing partnerships will be key, supported by a clear understanding of which products are right for which application.
“Of course, the equipment has to be great too, and I have been very impressed by what Lincat has to offer.”
