The former of head of Nisbets’ Uropa Brands business starts a new role with Synergy Grill today as the Cambridge firm looks to step up its growth plans.
Richard Ebbs is swapping his role with the distributor for a new challenge in the manufacturing segment after taking on the post of director for commercial and marketing.
He served at Nisbets for more than nine years and during this time was instrumental in driving forward the 30 exclusive brands that Nisbets offers, including Polar, Buffalo and Olympia, as well as helping the company launch the National Catering Equipment Centre (NCEC).
He said this morning: “I have loved being part of Nisbets in what has been a hugely successful time for the company and feel very proud of the work we have done in Uropa brands, product training and with the NCEC.
“I have no doubts that under [CEO] Klaus [Goeldenbot’s] leadership, Nisbets will continue to grow and this is only the beginning of the company’s success. However, I felt it was right for me to accept this new challenge and very fortunate to be offered the role within Synergy Grill.”
Synergy Grill markets the flagship grill of the same name and has won plaudits from the likes of TGI Fridays for its fat atomisation technology, which eradicates fat and reduces cleaning by 80%.
Justin Cadbury CEO of Synergy Grill, said: “We are delighted that Richard has decided to join us. He has incredible experience of the industry and brings with him a wealth of knowledge that will help us drive Synergy Grill forward”
“Synergy Grill has the patented fuel injection technology and will have the same effect to grills as fuel injection overtaking carburettors had in cars. It is the future. Several hundred restaurants already successfully depend on its reliability and superior performance and Richard is joining us at a perfect time to extend this new technology.”
