Simon Aspin, currently commercial director of Hubbard, will become HTG's managing director from 1 January 2018.  At the same time, Taylor’s commercial director, Pete Gray, will become managing director of Taylor. 

Meanwhile Martin Wood will step down from his role as chief executive of HTG Trading to become non-executive chair of the company. 

HTG’s subsidiaries look after many of the UK’s leading food service equipment brands and are known for the quality of their customer service and support. Hubbard Systems is the exclusive UK distributor of Scotsman ice-makers and Comenda ware washers. 

Taylor UK is the exclusive distributor for Taylor frozen drinks, dessert machines and clamshell grills,  Frigomat ice cream equipment and Prática combi ovens, as well as being the principal UK distributor of ISA refrigerated displays and Turbochef ovens.   

Mr Wood said: “HTG’s succession planning in recent years has been focused on developing internal candidates for senior management positions. We believe that the arrangements that are in place will allow the company to continue its successful growth path.” 

Mr Wood has been chief executive of HTG Trading for over 18 years, during which time the business has flourished; in the last five years alone, sales have risen by 86 percent. 

His ongoing association with the company over the next few years will allow him to assist with its continued progression. 

Mr Aspin concluded: “Martin’s contribution to the company’s success has been immense. We are very grateful that we will continue to benefit from his business acumen.”
