Vulcan has named Alex Ricciuti as the newest addition to its ever-expanding combi oven team.
She will lead the cooking equipment manufacturer’s field sales efforts as chef and combi business development manager.
Her role will involve traveling across the country to promote Vulcan’s combi oven offering with a special focus on driving end-user interest and dealer support with new combi-specific selling programs.
The company’s new TCM combi oven is in stock and available, and it is aiming to ramp up sales in the months ahead.
“Our combi oven business has been rapidly accelerating and we are excited to grow our product offering with Alex leading those efforts,” said Vulcan vice president and general manager Chris Stern.
“Alex’s expertise comes to us at such an opportune time because she will be supported by a newly restructured combi technical support team and a growing number of in-house culinary resources as she works with reps in the field to target and secure combi oven opportunities in conjunction with Vulcan’s dealer network.”
Ricciuti began her career working under chef Todd English at the Olives Group in Boston. She then founded Green Delicious Cooking Company, an award-winning Boston-area catering company providing chef services to on-location film productions.
For the past 13 years, Ricciuti has focused her culinary energy on working with best-in-class foodservice equipment companies, most recently for Wood Stone Corporation as chef and regional sales manager.
Prior to that, she spent five years as executive chef and regional sales manager for New England at Rational.
