German kitchen manufacturer Rational appoint Gary Griffin and Clive Allsop into new roles

German kitchen manufacturer Rational has made two new appointments in the UK.

Gary Griffin, Rational’s (above left) northern sales manager for the past eight years has been promoted to the role of national sales manager following the retirement of Craig Burgess-Allen; whilst new to the brand is Clive Allsop, who has taken on the role of area sales manager for the Southern region. Clive has many years’ experience in the kitchen industry with appliance brands DeDietrich and CDA, and most recently as business development manager for the Symphony Group.

Speaking about the appointments Rational’s MDThomas Klee said “We are pleased to welcome Clive into the Rational family – with a sound knowledge and years of experience in the kitchen industry he is well placed to serve our valued retailers in the south.

“We would also like to congratulate Gary on his appointment as national sales manager for Rational in the UK. We are confident that with this new team we are ready to take on the challenging market and continue to provide the best service to our dealers throughout the UK.

“We wish Craig Burgess-Allen all the very best in his well-earned retirement”
