“Scott is a proven, effective leader and with his expanded role he will be able to leverage the synergies among the Middleby countertop cooking brands” says Middleby CEO Tim FitzGerald. “He is well-acquainted with the customers and trends in the convenience store segment and has the experience to quickly deliver on our strategy to increase our market share and introduce new innovative product in this fast-growing market segment.”
