Leading global manufacturer of foodservice equipment, automation solutions and water treatment, Antunes, has promoted Tom Krisch, as the company’s new President. With 37 years of foodservice industry experience at Antunes, Tom has been supporting the world’s largest quick-service brands in the sales capacity for decades. The promotion is effective January 2, 2023.
“I am very much looking forward to this new role, where I will be able to continue to provide leadership to ensure that the corporate mission statement, core values and overall culture remain healthy and strong,” says Tom Krisch. “All of this while driving the company to achieve and surpass our shared corporate goals.”
Previous Executive Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Antunes, Tom will now focus on fostering a success oriented, accountable environment throughout all departments within the company.
While Tom might be Antunes’ new President, he has been on Antunes Executive team for more than 20 years. Tom now oversees Antunes globally including their headquarters and manufacturing plant in Carol Stream, IL and their international manufacturing locations in Suzhou, China and Chennai, India. With over 400 restaurant chains served globally, Antunes products are used in more than 150 countries.
