UK: Viessmann Refrigeration Systems has strengthened its sales team with two new appointments.

Iain Black has stepped into the newly-created post of UK and Ireland sales manager (cabinets), focusing on business development for plug-in and remote cabinets, and Leon Wilczynski has become sales manager for the north of the UK.

Black gained broad-ranging technical and commercial experience as an engineering manager for Tesco’s property department. After working on store and distribution centre specifications, roll-out programmes and environmental initiatives, Black was most recently Tesco Group buying manager responsible for the procurement of all refrigerated equipment and installation.

Wilczynski joins Veissmann after eight years as northern regional business unit manager for Foster Refrigerator and has more than 20 years’ experience in the commercial catering equipment industry working for blue chip companies.

Operating out of Viessmann’s Telford headquarters, Black and Wilczynski report to sales and marketing director Steve Steadman.
