The Middleby Corp. has appointed Emma Ashton to the newly created role of director of consultant services.

Before joining the manufacturer, Ashton held account management roles within the IT consulting industry.

She brings long-standing industry relationships to her new role, while she will be building new, trusted partnerships with our consultant partners.”

Ashton resides in Chicago’s Wicker Park neighborhood and enjoys exploring the Chicago restaurant scene and cooking.
