Former Middleby executive Dave Hinton has taken over as president of the Americas for Flexeserve, a U.K.-based manufacturer of hot holding units that is opening a new American subsidiary near Dallas.
“Our latest investments will assist future growth and greatly benefit our current and future customers in North, Central and South America,” said Jamie Joyce, global CEO of Flexeserve. “We are delighted to welcome Dave to the business. He is extremely well respected and his experience in our industry and vision for our products make him perfect to lead Flexeserve Inc.
“With Dave’s appointment and establishing our American HQ and Culinary Support Center in Southlake, Texas, we are cementing our commitment to the U.S., and I am very excited to announce this next step, bringing our true hot-holding to a wider American audience,” Joyce continued.
Hinton most recently served as group vice president of Middleby’s Star Holdings Group, where he was responsible for eight different commercial equipment brands. He has also spent time working for European-based Electrolux Professional.
“I’m really excited to get to work with Flexeserve and build our team in Southlake,” Hinton said. “Flexeserve patented products are unmatched in the industry and the team’s knowledge and passion for the service of hot food is formidable. I have been greatly encouraged by the personal connection I have already formed with the team in the U.K. and, together, we’re going to accelerate our growth.”
