Meet the Team
Nick is one of the founding members of Kent Commercial Kitchens. He deals with customer sales and post installation maintenance contracts. He is partial to hobnobs and for some reason no one understands refers to himself as studmuffin.
Dean has been with us for many years now. He is a very skilled catering engineer and a good problem solver. He does share a fairly common trait with other engineers in that he does like to have a bit of a whinge!
PL Accounts Manager
Sharon pays the bills and keeps us all on order with various compliance systems and certifications. She generally will not function correctly without copious supplies of black coffee and is very fond of lemon drizzle cake!
Service Team Member
Lee is also a long standing team member who is just as comfortable in the office helping service customers on the phone as out in customer premises repairing or servicing equipment, as long as it’s not too early in the morning.
Jenson and Lewis
The scourge of any visiting rep wearing a dark suit our two labradors provide a vital role of ‘hoovering up’ cake crumbs, letting us know when someone is at the door and generally cheering us up when its a tough day in the office.
Simon is one of the founding members of Kent Commercial Kitchens. He deals with kitchen design, equipment specification, project management and will always be onsite during installations. He has a bit of OCD when it comes to jobsite,workshop and office tidiness.
Nicole is the person that our service customers will speak to when something is broken.
She coordinates our hard working team of catering engineers making sure they get failed catering appliances back up and running as soon as possible.
