French bakery and patisserie producer Brioche Pasquier has bolstered its team by appointing Jon Turonnet as its foodservice sales manager.

Turonnet has been at the company since April 2015 as a sales coordinator, but his new role will focus on wholesale and distribution clients.

He brings a vast amount of knowledge and experience after working for more than 15 years in the industry in similar roles at the Milsom Hotels, Hilton Hotels and Lantmännen Unibake.

Turonnet expressed his excitement in starting a new challenge at Brioche Pasquier. “I will be focusing on the wholesale and distribution side of the business to support and grow current client relationships and find new opportunities that will further increase the presence of Brioche Pasquier within the foodservice market,” he said.

This month, Brioche Pasquier introduced the Tarte Citron Meringuée to its range in two versions.
