Foodservice equipment distributor Welbilt has announced not one but two changes to its senior management team, with Josef Matosevic leaving and Keri Llewellyn moving into a new role.
Llewellyn joined Welbilt in January 2020 as senior vice president, global business development, coming off the back of a multitude of roles with TriMark USA.
She also worked as a board member of the Foodservice Equipment Distributors Association.
Following her recent arrival at the company, she now steps into the newly created role of senior vice president and chief commercial officer.
Llewellyn will take on sales and marketing responsibilities left behind by Matosevic, who is stepping down from the role of executive vice president and chief operating officer. His other operating responsibilities will be distributed internally.
Matosevic will leave on May 1, 2020, to pursue other opportunities.
“Keri brings extensive industry experience to her new role,” said Bill Johnson, Welbilt president and CEO. “In her more than 13 years with TriMark, she was a key contributor to the successful integration of three divisions into one effective, high-performance organization that delivered growth and improved operating efficiencies.
“She also led a variety of sales, distribution and operations groups within TriMark during her time there. Her combination of organizational leadership and industry experience, working with both large restaurant chains and dealer channel partners, makes her the ideal leader for Welbilt’s sales and marketing organization.”
