Leadership Shifts At Zink Foodservice

In a step that undergirds a long-planned leadership transition at Zink Foodservice, Kevin Jennings is assuming the title of Vice President/General Manager-Tabletop & Smallwares. In this role, Jennings will assume the day-to-day responsibilities for the division. He’ll remain based in Zink’s Lisle, Ill., office and continue leading sales efforts at Edward Don & Co.

Jennings, who joined Zink Foodservice in 2011 as regional v.p.-Illinois, brings over 20 years of foodservice sales management experience to the post. Prior to joining Zink, he served as director of sales-western U.S. for Carlisle/Dinex; regional manager-Midwest for Cardinal Int’l.; and territory manager for Libbey Glass.

Jennings succeeds Steve Castle, who will work with him over the next six months to ensure a smooth transition. Castle will remain on the company's leadership team and assume a seat on Zink’s board of directors. He spent eight years at the Westerville, Ohio, rep firm, capping off a 38-year career in the industry.
