Middleby UK rewards Phil Denness with second swift promotion

14 Jul 22

Middleby UK has promoted Phil Denness to sales & marketing director – his second promotion within four months.

Denness took on the role as head of sales in February, where he was responsible for managing the external sales team for Middleby UK, ensuring growth and creating strategic plans to continue to expand the Middleby presence through sales.

His new role as sales & marketing director now sees him take responsibility for the marketing team, helping to drive the brand awareness and exposure for the business across the industry.

Denness said: “I’m delighted to be taking on the position of sales & marketing director for Middleby UK. The business is growing like never before and it’s a really exciting time for the whole team. New acquisitions coming on board expanding our already extensive portfolio is a huge driving factor which in turn will see us gain more market exposure.

“Taking on the marketing department also allows us to have the sales & marketing teams collaborate and work even closer than they were doing before and I can’t wait to see the expanding exposure and the market share we will gain.”

Chris Clark, managing director, added: “Phil has shown true passion and drive for Middleby UK in his four months as head of sales, the natural next step for us as a business was to promote Phil to the sales & marketing director role. He is already showing true dedication to the role and coming up with innovative ways to get our portfolio into new businesses with increased exposure. I’m looking forward to seeing where we are as a business in a few months time with Phil in his new position.”
