Hubbard Systems is expanding its sales and customer support team in the wake of being appointed by the Ali Group as the UK distributor of the Comenda warewasher range.
The company’s latest recruit is Robert Baughan, who takes on the role of business development manager for East Anglia and North London. He will look after both the Comenda and Scotsman brands.
Baughan is a sales professional who has spent most of his career in the media, but commercial director Simon Aspin said the company welcomes the different perspective that his experience can bring.
“He has an excellent track record of sales in a difficult and competitive environment,” he commented. “His expertise will be especially valuable as we build up sales of the Comenda brand.”
Baughan said it was friends in the hospitality industry who suggested he apply for the Hubbard Systems job.
“Their very positive feedback on Hubbard, both for customer support and the quality of the Scotsman product, made my mind up – this is a company I want to work for. Taking on the Comenda range and bringing it under the Hubbard Systems ethos of service and customer care increases the variety of my role. My aim is to make a real difference to Hubbard and to our dealer network.”
As well as managing the Comenda range of warewashers, Hubbard Systems is the UK distributor for the Scotsman brand of icemakers.
