Bidfood has appointed Vicki Philpott as business development controller for hotels and restaurants. She is responsible for leading the national sales teams in supporting these sectors.
Philpott (pictured) began her career with Diageo almost 25 years ago. Since then she has undertaken roles with suppliers including Molson Coors, Twinings, Mars and, most recently, Hain Celestial.
In addition to her experience, Philpott is a strong advocate of diversity and inclusion, championing industry networking programmes such as Women in Wholesale which recently rebranded as Diversity in Wholesale.
Philpott commented: “The last few years have been challenging for hotels and restaurants, however I’m optimistic that as we approach 2024 the sector will continue to flourish and bring with it a number of opportunities.
“My passion for the foodservice industry has always been at the forefront of the work I do and I’m extremely excited to have joined Bidfood. This role will allow me to put my existing relationships and knowledge to good use, whilst working with the team to continue the outstanding work they do to deliver service excellence and help our customers grow.”Published Date: November 24, 2023
