Falcon has announced that Rob Keitch has joined its sales team as National Account Manager. In this role, Rob will be responsible for looking after some of Falcon’s National Account customers and generating new business across the national account sector.
Rob has extensive experience in sales, both within the catering industry and without. He spent 15 years with Nisbets as a business sector manager and joins Falcon following a spell as a key account manager for a UK-wide wholesaler, where he was selling non-catering equipment into the healthcare sector.
Rob said: “I’m excited to be joining Falcon, it’s a company with a great reputation and is a really strong brand. I enjoyed my previous job immensely but always wanted to get back into the catering industry and when this opportunity arose I just couldn’t turn it down.”
Kevin Veitch, Head of National Accounts at Falcon, added, “I’ve known Rob for a long time and when we decided to expand the team he was the first person I thought of. He’s got all the attributes, people skills and experience needed to build strong relationships with new and existing customers. I know he will become a key part of our sales team.”
Outside of work, Rob lives in Bristol with his family and is a long-standing (and long-suffering) Bristol City FC season ticket holder.
