Ice cream and gelato manufacturer Carpigiani has hired a business development manager to oversee its sales activities in London and the south.
Sean Barnett joins the business from Nespresso Professional, where he focused exclusively on hotels, fine dining and premium casual restaurants as well as managing several national accounts.
Mr Barnett hopes to re-establish those relationships in his new role with the ice cream machine supplier, which is part of the Ali Group.
“My key focus will be to concentrate on our restaurant range and capitalise on the successful relationships I have built within the restaurant and hotel industry over the last three years. Working with existing and new customers, I am really excited to grow our presence within these markets and generate new and exciting opportunities in premium soft serve ice cream and gelato. “
Scott Duncan, sales director at Carpigiani, said the appointment would strengthen its position in the market.
“Building excellent working relationships is key to our business. We are well-known in the industry for putting our customers first and ensuring we deliver everything that they need. Appointing Sean as business development manager for the South East and South London is going to be a great boost for our existing customers and for our business overall.”
