From 1st February, Patrick Nijs will be Export Director for both Foster Refrigerator and Gamko. Having worked for Foster and Gamko’s parent company ITW since 2000, Patrick has great experience of the export world, with his job roles having always been directly involved with export markets.
Initially working solely for Gamko, Patrick’s expertise broadened in 2008 as his role integrated more closely with Foster’s export team. Becoming Export Director is a natural progression after Patrick has managed the export department for the last two years.
“I am thrilled to lead this fabulous department,” Patrick said. “Our team not only has a wealth of experience in both the Foster and Gamko brands, it is truly international. Comprising of seven nationalities, speaking nine languages, we have a great deal to offer our customers across the globe and the team’s enthusiasm to provide fantastic service is second to none.”
Already a familiar face at international foodservice exhibitions, Patrick looks forward to meeting with customers old and new at Internorga in March and Host Milan in October.
