“With more than 25 years at Imperial, Matt is deeply knowledgeable and highly respected within the industry. He has built deep trust with key customers and has proven to be a highly effective leader within Imperial,” says Steve Spittle, Middleby COO, in a press release. “Matt has had made significant contributions during his tenure, including the development of Imperial’s world-class manufacturing facility. He has also been responsible for the introduction of many new, innovative products to the marketplace. We are confident the broad experience Matt brings to his new role will be an asset not only to the Imperial brand but to all of Middleby.”
