HICKSVILLE, Ohio—Seeing a steady rise in the number of equipment solutions that it’s bringing to foodservice dealers and operators by way of its global-sourcing capabilities, Nemco Food Equipment is announcing a major personnel move as part of a new leadership investment in this evolving aspect of the company.

Joe Carcione, CFSP, will step out of his current role as Nemco’s Director of Sales and assume new responsibilities as Director of Global Solutions, the company’s dedicated sourcing business. Taking his place as the new Director of Sales, going forward, will be Jim Drake, a foodservice veteran added to the Nemco team last year.

“Our sourcing opportunities, as a means to solve business problems for multiple forces in the foodservice industry, are expanding so fast that they clearly demand the commitment of an executive-level position,” says Michelle Wibel, Nemco’s president. “Placing Joe in that role, alongside Jim—both accomplished, consultative foodservice sales professionals—strengthens our ability to provide the right equipment solution for every unique customer situation.”

Carcione will continue to develop Nemco’s International Sales, while spearheading the development and execution of Global Solutions’ business strategy.

Meanwhile, as Director of Sales, Drake will oversee all business endeavors and customer-service relationships involving sales or new product engineering and development through the company’s network of independent sales representatives, accounts with dealer and buying-group organizations, or direct engagement with chain executives.
