Simon Heath joins Crane as Sales Director

Crane Merchandising Systems (CMS) has appointed Simon Heath (pictured) to the position of UK Sales Director.
Simon joins CMS following a year outside the vending industry with wireless comms solutions provider Comtech. He is well known in the industry for his time as Managing Director of Apollo and Teknowledge Group and, prior to this, at Four Square, a divison of Mars UK where he spent 13 years in various roles.
Reporting to Andy Porter, Simon will head up the UK sales and customer service team within CMS, and assume responsibility as a member of the Crane Merchandising Systems Europe Board.
“It’s a great time to be joining CMS, following the successful integration of AP and Dixie-Narco equipment into the business”, Simon commented. “Combined with our industry-leading beverage solutions plus food and snack machines, we can provide our customers with a world-class range of vending solutions to meet their requirements, all from our base in Chippenham”.
Andy Porter is enthusiastic about the contribution Simon can make within CMS: “With his strong experience and career achievements, I am confident in Simon’s ability to help us achieve our business objectives over 2008 and the coming years.”
