The Oneida Group has hired Frank Biller as national sales manager for its Anchor Hocking foodservice business.
A sure bet, Biller is no stranger to the firm or product lines having served in multiple leadership roles for Anchor Hocking between 2004 and 2014.
In his new role, Biller will be accountable for leading and building the Anchor Hocking foodservice team.
Biller said: “Anchor Hocking is a well-known brand widely recognized for its high-quality products.
“This position presented a wonderful opportunity to return to where I started in tabletop 15 years ago. It will be a labor of love, and the capstone of my career, to be a part of the team that drives Anchor Hocking’s market re-entry with new energy and focus.”
The move comes at a time where the group attempt to grow its glass manufacturing capacity alongside its customer base and market presence in the hospitality industry.
The firm is trying to build up momentum after selling the majority of its foodservice business to Crown Brands in January of 2019.
Bert Filice, president and chief sales and marketing officer of The Oneida Group, said: “Frank brings a wealth of experience to this role at an exciting time for our Anchor Hocking foodservice business.
“Under his leadership, the Anchor Hocking sales team will reinforce our support and commitment to our longstanding distribution partners, while also focusing on new installations at the operator level using Anchor Hocking’s quality glass portfolio and exciting innovation. We are delighted to welcome him back.”
In his time away from the group, Biller served as director of foodservice at Vertex China and as national director of foodservice sales at Arc International.
Earlier this week, Catering Insight USA reported that Oneida had named Sean Gibson as its vice president of marketing and product innovation.
Gibson, who has an extensive background in brand management and consumer product marketing, has served since 2017 as the company’s director of marketing and innovation.
Since assuming the role, Gibson has worked to reorganize the marketing team to increase focus on category expertise within each brand to leverage The Oneida Group’s expansive product portfolio across multiple categories to drive growth and innovation.
