Motes began her foodservice industry career in 2001, working in restaurant operations and fine dining management.

She has been with Ali Group since 2009, when she joined Beverage-Air, and has headed up sales and marketing for its refrigeration division for the last three years.

During her tenure, she was instrumental in integrating the sales and marketing teams for Beverage-Air and Victory to significantly grow market share and brand presence.

Ali Group said her replacement will be named in the near future.

Meanwhile, Victoria Campbell has been named president of Electro Freeze, where she will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the company.

She has been with the soft ice cream machine brand for seven years since joining as vice president of finance.

After playing an instrumental role in implementing best practices in all areas of finance and accounting as well as operations, she was given additional responsibilities over the manufacturing and operations functions.

Her appointment comes as previous CEO Tom Hotard leaves his position to become senior vice president for Ali Group.

The Ali Group and its 95 global brands employ approximately 14,000 people in 34 countries and, in terms of sales, is the world’s largest group in the foodservice equipment industry.

It has 75 manufacturing facilities in 17 countries and sales and service subsidiaries throughout Europe, the Middle East, Africa, North America, South America, and Asia Pacific.
