Sales organisation strengthened

Sales organisation strengthened

Baker Perkins has strengthened its sales organisation with the appointment of a sales director, sales team leaders, a process team manager and a sales support team manager.

Dan Bassett is now sales director, capital goods, responsible for all sales and sales support functions. Steve Philpott is sales team leader for the bakery and biscuit sectors; Jason Scott covers confectionery, cereal and snack.

Tony Prange is responsible for applying Baker Perkins’ unique depth of process knowledge to maximize opportunities for creative end product development. Pete Scott-Johnson will manage the sales support functions.

All five have spent their careers to date with Baker Perkins, and have an extensive knowledge of the industries in which Baker Perkins operates. Dan Bassett became a sales manager for biscuit equipment, then commercial manager, and latterly sales director for the bakery and biscuit sectors world-wide.

Steve Philpott worked in design before moving to sales, most recently as bakery and biscuit equipment sales manager. Jason Scott joined the sales team serving the biscuit industry before moving to the confectionery, snack and cereal industries as regional sales manager, initially for Europe before taking on responsibility for Africa, the Indian subcontinent and the Middle East.

Process team manager Tony Prange was previously senior process engineer. He has spent much of his career in the company’s Innovation Centre working with customers to develop new products, concepts and processes. Pete Scott-Johnson trained as a fitter at Baker Perkins before moving into sales support for bakery and extrusion.

Baker Perkins provides know-how, equipment and integrated systems to the global bakery, biscuit, confectionery, cereal, snack and industrial extrusion sectors.
