Lincat announces retirement of UK Sales Director
Lincat, the UK’s leading manufacturer of commercial catering equipment, has announced that UK Sales Director, Tony Aston will be retiring at the end of the year, after 14 years with the company.
Managing Director Nick McDonald said:
“During his time with Lincat, Tony has made a great contribution to the growth of sales in the UK and Ireland. He has established himself as a popular and respected figure, not only within the company, but also in the wider industry, having represented Lincat on the Council of CESA for many years. I would like to thank Tony for his dedicated and loyal service to the company and wish him a long and happy retirement.”
Following in Tony’s footsteps will be Lincat’s Group National Accounts Manager, Rob Gibson who has been promoted to Sales Director Designate. Rob has been with Lincat since 1999 and so is well qualified to succeed Tony in his new role. For the rest of the year, Rob will work closely alongside Tony, gradually assuming full responsibility for the UK sales function.
