Following Christian Jones’ promotion to Distributor Sales Director, Lincat has appointed two new managers to its sales team. Simon Dann joins the company as a National Accounts Manager, while Keith Shelly takes up the reins as Regional Sales Manager – North East.

Simon will be managing some of Lincat’s existing key National Accounts, as well as securing new business. With 11 years of sales experience, Simon has worked in the motor industry and spent four years in a national business development role at one of the UK’s largest independent manufacturers and suppliers of cleaning and hygiene chemicals.

Keith will be working closely with Lincat’s extensive network of dealers in the North East to provide the very best advice and support. He will be responsible for generating opportunities, winning more market share for Lincat and advising dealers of new products as they launch. Following seven years working in the catering industry, Keith joined Lincat in 2008 in an aftersales support role. His new position will enable him to strengthen his existing relationships with Lincat’s customer base and utilise his extensive technical product knowledge.

His new role allows his predecessor Mike Woodman to take on fully his new role joining Simon in the National Accounts team.

Sales Director Rob Gibson commented:

“We are delighted to welcome both Simon and Keith to the team. Simon’s extensive sales experience and Keith’s industry knowledge will help further develop our strong distributor network, which plays a key part in the high-quality customer service we offer. Their appointment is part of a reorganisation of our sales team, to ensure a more comprehensive coverage across the UK.”

Both Simon and Keith are based in Lincolnshire. In his spare time, Simon enjoys motorsport, both as a spectator and competitor, and playing golf. Away from the office, music-lover Keith spends time at concerts and festivals, as well as running and playing badminton.
