Hoshizaki America, a FEDA manufacturer member, announced two changes within the sales organization. Brian Rakers has been promoted to senior sales director – eastern zone, and Dan Cazalet has been promoted to regional sales director – western region.

Rakers joined Hoshizaki in 2019 as a senior account manager in the south central region before being promoted to regional sales director for the northeastern region. “Brian has demonstrated himself to be a confident leader, communicator, and problem solver, capable of making tough decisions and always pushing for improvement and growth,” said Allan Dziwoki, senior vice president of sales and marketing. “Those qualities will serve him well as he takes on the responsibility of leading a new larger territory."

Cazalet has been with Hoshizaki for 18 years, serving in a variety of roles, including quality engineer, senior service manager, branch manager, and, most recently, senior operations manager. “Dan's operational and sales manager experience coupled with his strong analytical skills, desire to learn, and passion for improving both the product and customer experience made him the clear choice to fill this role,” said Scott Meyer, vice president of sales. “We are excited to see how Dan's background will allow him to take the position to the next level.”
