Ali Group Appoints Gehl As EMEA/APAC Group Director

Ali Group has named Robert Gehl as Group Commercial Director for Europe, Middle East, Africa (EMEA) and Asia Pacific (APAC), effective immediately. The April 28 announcement was made by Luciano Berti, Ali Group Chairman/CEO, to whom Gehl will directly report.

Gehl will work closely with the Ali Group brands to support the development of commercial and marketing relationships across institutional and commercial hospitality segments. He will act as the group-level contact for regional and global key accounts with hotel and restaurant chains, buying groups, catering companies and QSRs.

A nearly 25-year veteran of the foodservice equipment industry, Gehl joined the Ali Group last November after a 10-year tenure at Pentair’s water filtration systems division as director of foodservice-EMEA. Prior to that, he held various sales, marketing and management positions with Lancer Corp./ Hoshizaki; Multiplex/Manitowoc Foodservice; and JetSpray/Cornelius.

Gehl, a U.S. and Belgian dual national, has spent more than 20 years in Europe. He will be based in Ali’s head offices in Milan, Italy. “I am sure his experience will allow our companies to better understand and serve the needs of our global customers,” stated Berti.

The Ali Group has 76 global brands.
