New _Electrolux _Staff

The past couple of months we have had a number of new staff join First Choice and many have come from Electrolux; after the decision was made to move the Electrolux Professional Food Service headquarters from Birmingham to Luton. First Choice has therefore strengthened its knowledge of the Electrolux brand considerably by welcoming Robin Tompkins into the Technical Team, Lisa Togher to the company as a Team Leader for partner customers, and Gill Ryan and Dawn Goding who are working in the Purchasing and Accounts departments.

Robin has come to First Choice with a total 36 years of experience in the food service industry, after initially working for Crypto Peerless and then Electrolux. Robin worked with both First Choice Directors, John and Carl, at Electrolux and so when the operations moved to Luton the decision to join First Choice with his old colleagues seemed a natural progression.

Lisa joined us from Electrolux at the beginning of October, where she had worked for 21 years. Working alongside the technical team there, and providing technical information to the engineers and support for the service providers. Her knowledge of the brand and expertise of product communication will be a great asset for the team who handle our partner customers.

Meanwhile, Gill joined Electrolux in 1998 and since then has worked in the purchasing department, as well as being the exports administrator for 2 years which took her all over Europe. Having worked for Electrolux for 15 years Gill was sad to leave the company after its move South but she is glad to have joined First Choice and been given the opportunity to carry on within the same industry.

Finally Management Accountant Dawn, initially worked in the catering industry as a Catering Manager before she decided to train in Accounting at night school and gaining her AAT Qualifications. She joined Electrolux in 2008 as the Management Accountant, but also got the chance to work in technical, purchasing and sales ordering.

With such a wealth of experience provided by our recent new-comers First Choice are proud to say that we now offer our customers over 100 years combined knowledge of the Electrolux brand. This will enable us to provide a top quality customer service and ensuring continuous customer satisfaction.  

We’re driven with a passion and desire to be the best we can be, and this year alone at First Choice, we have employed over 20 new staff and with the continual growth of the company from year to year, we expect this number to continue to rise as we continue to evolve.
