In this role, he will oversee sales education training and focus on targeted sales growth for the brand.

He has experience working with dealers, consultants and end-users and has managed all aspects of procurement, warehousing, processing, distribution and customer experience.

“We’re excited to bring Charlie onto our team to focus on and help grow the IBEX business,” says Markus Glueck, ITW Food Equipment Group president of cooking, in a press release. “His extensive experience in the foodservice industry sets an excellent foundation for him to lead the way to introduce and sell IBEX rapid-cook ovens.”
