Steadman to join Capital Cooling as CEO

UK: Viessmann Refrigeration Systems MD Steve Steadman has left the business to become the CEO of Capital Cooling Refrigeration.

With extensive sales and commercial experience of the refrigeration market, Steadman joined Viessmann in 2015. He started his career in 1986 with Sainsbury’s where he was responsible for purchasing refrigeration and bakery equipment. In 2002 he moved to Scobie & McIntosh, where he was responsible for sales of refrigeration equipment and associated services. He then spent 10 years running his own business, selling bakery and refrigeration products to the grocery trade.

He will join the Edinburgh-based commercial refrigeration equipment supplier at the start of November, taking over the role vacated by James Anderson in March. Anderson had been involved in the buy out of Capital Cooling’s cabinet sales business from the administrator at the end of December.
