New Country Manager employed in the UK
Wexiödisk UK is delighted to announce the appointment of David Glover as their new UK & Ireland Country Manager, ahead of the impending retirement of John Shepherd, who has held the role for the past four years.
David brings with him invaluable industry experience, having spent his entire career in the foodservice industry, both working as a chef, as well as fulfilling senior sales roles for the likes of Rational, Electrolux and various equipment dealers. David joins Wexiödisk from USS Catering where he has held the position of Sales Director for the past four and a half years. David will officially start the role in July, where he will spend eight weeks working closely with John and the team in Sweden, to get up to speed with the Wexiodisk equipment range and wider business ethos.
David is delighted to be starting this exciting role with Wexiödisk having developed a close relationship with the warewashing experts in his role at USS Catering:
”From the moment I was introduced to Wexiödisk at USS Catering, I was blown away by the brand’s innovative and sustainable approach to warewashing. In fact, so passionate was I about the brands warewashing portfolio that I secured USS Caterings’s first Wexiödisk sale which has since led to the company’s machines being specified on numerous different projects.”
“David’s familiarity and passion for the Wexiödisk brand, in addition to his impressive foodservice career, are factors which make him the perfect candidate for this position.
