Middleby has announced that its president John Perruccio will be taking on extra responsibilities leading the buying group and dealer strategy team in addition to his existing role.
This change is effective immediately and has been implemented after a successful first year as president for Perruccio.
In his new role as Middleby buying group and dealer liaison, the company said, John Perruccio will continue to build upon this momentum, ensuring coordination and communication with Middleby dealer partners and buying groups.
Perruccio will continue in his current position as group president, overseeing Southbend and the Crown steam family, which includes the brands Crown, Firex and Market Forge.
Steam equipment, Middelby said, is a major initiative and growth opportunity for the company with the recent formation of this group, and it hopes to see continued growth under Perruccio.
“Throughout his career John has built long-standing, trusted relationships with dealer partners,” said Middleby CEO Tim FitzGerald. “It is important for us to continue to strengthen these relationships for all Middleby brands within the buying groups and dealer community.
“John’s leadership will allow us to cultivate new opportunities including expanding customer segments and introducing new product with our entire portfolio of highly-respected commercial brands.
“We are now well-positioned to best support our valued dealer partners and grow sales.”
