Eldridge, Johnson Take New Roles In Sales Team Management

Master-Bilt is pleased to announce that Bret Eldridge has assumed the role of Director of National Accounts.

Bret was previously Master-Bilt’s Regional Sales Manager for the Midwest and Northeastern part of the United States as well as Eastern Canada.

Bret has a significant background working with foodservice chains as well as very valuable experience as a successful senior executive with several restaurant operators. His experience in this area will be a great fit in positioning Master-Bilt’s goods and services with the needs and expectations of national accounts.

Taking Bret’s place as Regional Sales Manager is Rodney Johnson, who will manage seven manufacturer representative groups throughout the Midwest, Northeast and Eastern Canada.

Rodney has over 30 years of sales management experience. Most recently, he worked with Acosta Sales and Marketing where he was Vice President of Sales for the Midwest. He was responsible for leading the national sales and marketing company in retail food, commercial food service and non-foods (equipment) industries. Prior to Acosta Sales, Rodney managed The HGA Group as President.

“We are pleased to have someone with Bret’s experience and ability who can smoothly transition into his new role. We’re also very happy to welcome Rodney with his strong industry knowledge and understanding of the customer,” said Master-Bilt Vice President of Sales Chris Karssiens.
