Forward-looking Sprint Group appoints new sales director

Design, installation and equipment specialist Sprint Group has appointed a new sales director as part of its ambitious growth strategy.

Experienced industry professional Ian Bryant joined the Worcestershire-based company as sales manager (south) in June.  

Mr Bryant, who has worked in the catering equipment sector for 20 years including seven years as sales director at The Carford Group, will head up the sales force at the fast-growing firm.

“My role will include putting in place strategies for long term growth and looking at how we take the business forward,” he said.        

“We are very strong in the restaurant and bar sector so I will be identifying opportunities in other areas such as hotels, leisure and care homes.”   

Managing director Tom Bartley-Smith said: “Ian’s promotion is yet another positive step for the future of Sprint Group and reaffirms our commitment to delivering outstanding projects across the UK.

“We are undergoing a period of unprecedented growth and were recently named among the county’s fastest-growing mid-sized businesses in the Worcestershire Growth Barometer 2017.”

Founded in 1994 by the late David Ryan, Sprint Group designs and installs commercial kitchens and bars for clients including The Ivy Collection, Dirty Martini, Tortilla and The White Brasserie Company and operates a 24/7 breakdown and maintenance service.
