Fine food distributor RH Amar is continuing to strengthen its team with two new appointments as it looks forward to a landmark 70th anniversary in 2015.
The company, which has already made a number of new additions to its marketing, sales and consumer insight teams throughout 2013, has taken on Gareth Morgan who joins as area account manager, covering the South West of England and South Wales.
Morgan comes from a sales role with Premier Foods and will have specific responsibility for servicing independent wholesalers and foodservice accounts across both regions. He told Wholesale News: “I have always heard great things about RH Amar and the brands they represent, so this was a fantastic opportunity to join a family-owned company at a really exciting time in its history.”
Meanwhile, Markus Endt joins as senior technical manager, overseeing the technical side of RH Amar’s branded and private label portfolio. He joins from Halo Foods, part of Raisio Western Europe, where he was head of divisional technical. Prior to that, he held technical roles with Premier Foods, PepsiCo and Honey Monster Foods.
“I am really looking forward to dealing with such a great portfolio of brands, while it is incredibly exciting to be joining an ambitious family business that goes from strength to strength,” he said this week.
