Emma Brooks has stepped up to become managing director of Quintex Systems after 16 years with the company.
Along with Keith Stevens, Ms Brooks – who previously served as general manager – will now be responsible for the company’s affairs. Mr Stevens, meanwhile, will take up the role of chairman.
The ventilation and grease management technology specialist said Ms Brooks has been instrumental in expanding on the solutions that Quintex offers the catering sector.
She will now have responsibility for the direction of the company and its future strategy.
She said: “I’ve worked for Quintex for 16 years and absolutely love my job. I believe in everything we do – integrity and honesty is extremely important to me. All of our products provide a sustainable solution for our clients and when you get that positive phone call for future business, it just makes the job even more satisfying.”
Mr Stevens stated: “I’d like to thank Emma for her immense efforts over the past 20 months. Restructuring the business, managing day to day activities, as well as keeping some of our key customers happy are only a few of the challenges she has encountered.
“This time last year we had turned the corner to a profitable year and were looking forward to continuing success in the coming years. Who would have predicted what was to come – the most testing and trying time the business has encountered since its inception 20 years ago? But we are still here in business and still looking forward.”
In addition to her new role at Quintex, Ms Brooks has recently been appointed to the FEA council.
