Lincoln-based commercial catering equipment manufacturer Lincat has appointed two new managers to its sales team.

Following Christian Jones’ recent promotion to distributor sales director, the company has now taken on two new managers in the sales team. Simon Dann joins the company as a national accounts manager, while Keith Shelly (pictured) is now regional sales manager – north east.

With 11 years of sales experience, Dann has worked in the motor industry and spent four years in a national business development role at one of the UK’s largest independent manufacturers and suppliers of cleaning and hygiene chemicals.

Shelly has spent seven years in the catering industry, and joined Lincat in 2008 in an aftersales support role.

Rob Gibson, sales director, said: “Simon’s extensive sales experience and Keith’s industry knowledge will help further develop our strong distributor network, which plays a key part in the high-quality customer service we offer.

“Their appointment is part of a reorganisation of our sales team, to ensure a more comprehensive coverage across the UK.”
