Double hire for fast-growing Sprint Group

Midlands catering equipment specialist Sprint Group is continuing its expansion with the appointment of two sales managers.

Matthew Francis and Simon Dann, pictured right, have been tasked with looking after key accounts and attracting new business.

Mr Francis, who will focus on London and the South East, worked in magazine publishing before setting up his own company SJF Catering Equipment. He then spent 19 months with Swift Catering Equipment, working on a wide range of design and installation projects before joining Sprint Group.

Previously a national account manager with Lincat for two years, Mr Dann has also worked for Zenith Hygiene Group and spent ten years in sales and product development roles within the motor industry.   

Sprint Group sales director Ian Bryant said: “I’m delighted to welcome Matthew and Simon to the sales team. They both have vast knowledge and experience of the industry and will help to extend the company’s reach across the UK as we seek to identify new opportunities, particularly in the hotel and leisure, education and care home sectors.”

Based in Worcestershire, Sprint Group is one of the UK’s leading catering and refrigeration equipment suppliers, serving partners including High Street names and the hottest new restaurants and bars with project design and installation, equipment sales and maintenance support.
