Lilley will help foodservice dealers and design consultants in the U.K. and Ireland market save time and grow their businesses with Specifi’s quote and design solutions.

Lilley has previous experience at Wiesheu/Atollspeed, part of a larger global investment group involved in the foodservice industry that includes BWT, Astoria and the Kolb Group. Prior to that, he spent time at Electrolux Professional UK, Hobart UK and Costa Coffee.

At Specifi, Lilley will work closely with Nic Banner, Specifi’s VP of sales for the U.K. and Ireland, who says the company is “delighted to welcome a person of Simon’s experience within the commercial catering equipment field.”

We are impressed by his passion to help customers succeed and for the foodservice sector as a whole.”
