Innovative Foodservice Group (IFG), a foodservice equipment dealer based in Tampa, Florida, announced the addition of Douglas Block as a sales and marketing manager for Intedge Manufacturing. Intedge is a manufacturer of value-added textiles for the foodservice industry and a subsidiary of IFG.
Block began his foodservice career while still in college, working for banquet caterers and hotels. Using this experience, he joined his family’s rep firm, Young Block Associates, where he called on all aspects of the foodservice and hospitality industry in the New York and New Jersey markets for more than 25 years. Before joining IFG, Block relocated with his wife and young children to Greenville, South Carolina, where he joined a large foodservice distributor as their branch manager.
“It’s great to have Douglas join our Intedge team to lead our sales growth plans,” CEO Iain Whyte said. “His vast experience as a sales rep and working for a major foodservice retailer brings new skills and talent to the Intedge team.”
