Kuhn Rikon has promoted Ruedi Keller to regional sales manager, Pacific Northwest and Latin America.
Keller, who had been regional sales manager, Latin America, will now also be responsible for increasing sales and building the brand in the Pacific Northwest.
Keller has worked at the company since 2008, as both a culinary advisor and warehouse manager before being promoted into sales. His culinary background includes Le Cordon Bleu in San Francisco, The Kitchen in Sacramento, and Insalatas in San Anselmo.
Kuhn Rikon also noted that the company has been part of Keller’s life since childhood. His father, Rudy Keller, former chairman of the board of Kuhn Rikon USA, introduced his son to the culinary arts by cooking with him at home using Kuhn Rikon cookware and kitchen tools.
