Eloma has announced two organizational changes within its USA business.
Matthew Auck (main image) has been named vice president of sales and marketing, while Jason Jones has been appointed sales manager.
Auck assumes the role previously held by Martin Huddleston, who took the role of general manager at Convotherm US, now a fellow Ali Group company.
He will be responsible for leading all US sales, service and support activities for the company.
Auck has spent his career as a working chef in large-scale sports venues throughout the US and as a culinary sales expert.
Prior to joining Eloma USA in 2020, he served as a manufacturer’s corporate regional chef for eight years.
He was responsible for accounts in the western region of the US, managing and growing hot- side brands among key customers and partners.
During the last two years at Eloma, where he was director, sales and culinary, he combined culinary expertise with customer relationship development. His replacement will be announced in the near future.
Meanwhile, Jones (above) will support all sales activities for the brand in the US, reporting into Auck.
Jones’ foodservice background includes a culinary degree from the New England Culinary Institute, and several executive chef positions across a broad array of segments from fine dining to catering.
In his most recent role, he consulted with customers to build high-end, multifaceted kitchens for a variety of foodservice operations in partnership with a distributor in the Ohio River Valley.
Eloma manufactures combi steamers and bake-off ovens in Germany. The company was founded in 1975 and joined the Ali Group in 2007. It operates worldwide and delivers to more than 65 countries.
