With an aim to continue their rapid growth and expansion, Capital Cooling Refrigeration has appointed industry expert, Steve Steadman, as their new Chief Executive Officer. Steve will join the Edinburghbased refrigeration supplier as CEO from the start of November this year, bringing with him a wealth of commercial business and industry knowledge, which will complement Capital Cooling’s recently refreshed management board.
Boasting over 30 years of experience working for large, blue-chip companies such as Sainsbury’s, where he was responsible for the development of capital equipment and refrigeration, Steve has also successfully run his own businesses within the retail shopfitting and commercial refrigeration sector. Steve’s move comes from Viessmann Refrigeration Systems, where he was Managing Director for the UK arm of the German company after accepting the role in January 2015.
Since taking up his position at Viessmann, Steve was able to successfully grow the business and its brand, generating sales of cold rooms and refrigerated cabinets to new customers and markets in the UK.
Using this extensive experience and impressive expertise, Steve will focus his efforts at Capital Cooling on steering the brand from a sales and service perspective, allowing the refrigeration enterprise to develop a new and exciting product portfolio which will introduce the company into new market sectors.
