Middleby Meets: Brandon McKenna

22 Apr 22

Our Import/Export Coordinator Brandon McKenna joined our amazing team 4 months ago, but has so far built a 7 year career within the freight industry. Let’s learn some more about Brandon..

Tell us a bit about yourself.

I’m a local Wiganer that’s been working in the freight industry for 7 years. I started my career in Manchester as an apprentice at 17 for a major shipping line, specialising in documents and fixing customs issues. I wanted to broaden my shipping knowledge, work in my hometown and try a new challenge which is when I joined Middleby UK. I’m very happy that my 8th year in the industry will be at Middleby!

What’s your favourite thing about working at Middleby UK?

It has to be the company ethos and the people I work with. I instantly felt like part of the team upon joining and love the laissez-faire environment which gives me the full creative freedom to work on projects, reports and correspondences.

How long have you been at Middleby?

4 wonderful months.

What’s your favourite product?

My favourite product must be the Blodgett 1060. Imagine everything that you could cook with that in your kitchen, although you’d be asked to cook Christmas dinner every year!

What do you get up to outside of work?

I spend a lot of my spare time on my computer where I run a small but growing community. We play games, host events, watch videos and chat. When I’m not on my computer I’m usually hanging out with friends, watching football or doing inescapable housework/chores.

And finally, just for fun, what’s your favourite food?

I really love Vietnamese or Thai cuisine, it would be a difficult pick between Phad Thai and Banh Mi.

Thanks Brandon, it’s been a pleasure learning more about you!
