Meiko UK has appointed Steve Evans as sales director to ‘strengthen the management team’ with his ‘extensive experience.’

Evans, who will be joining Meiko UK on 2 September 2019, said: “Opportunities like this don’t come that often and I am very happy to be joining the Meiko UK leadership team.

“I have known the Meiko brand for a long time. The attraction of Meiko UK is that it is all about quality. The company has a great reputation for its products, customer service and, increasingly, for its environmental awareness.

“I personally thrive on human interaction and it is exciting to move away from a corporate environment and to get back into the front line.”

Meiko UK recently celebrated their 25th anniversary. When Meiko UK launched there were just a handful of employees and now there are over 2,000 across 30 countries. Initially the turnover was less than £1 million but now it is around £20 million.

Evans has over 20 years of sales experience and one of his previous roles included sales director at Nisbets where he managed accounts for catering equipment distributors.  

Paul Anderson, Meiko UK managing director, added: “Steve is joining Meiko UK as we are experiencing a period of unprecedented growth and in advance of exciting future developments within the Meiko group that will become apparent during 2020.

“Our market is complex and evolving fast to take in increasingly important environmental issues. Steve’s understanding of how the market works and his ability to motivate, build and maintain excellent working relationships will be a great boost for our sales team and our distributor partners.”
