Middleby UK has appointed Phil Denness as head of sales, promoted from his previous role as national account manager.

Mr Denness’ new role will see him responsible for managing the external sales team at Middleby UK, ensuring growth and creating strategic plans to continue to expand its customer presence.

He said: “I’ve been with the Middleby UK team for seven years and this next step for me is exciting and I’m ready to grow the business to the next level under the leadership of Chris Clark. The Middleby portfolio of brands just keeps growing, which is a huge driving factor for us as a team to continue the growth and expansion of Middleby into the UK market.”

Wigan-based Middleby supplies catering equipment from brands such as Pitco, TurboChef, Josper, Middleby Marshall, MagiKitch’n, Beech, Concordia, Synesso and Carter Hoffmann.

Chris Clark, managing director of Middleby UK, said: “Phil has truly grown and thrived within his national account manager role that he took on last July and promoting him to head of sales will be great for the business. Driving sales is huge for us and with Phil leading the external sales team I can’t wait to see where we are taken to in 2022.”
