Globe Food Equipment, Standex, and Master-Bilt Make Key Personnel Additions

Ohio-based Globe Food Equipment, a subsidiary of The Middleby Corp., has hired Brian Clouse as its new national service manager while Standex Refrigerated Solutions Group (RSG) recently named Isaac Madla its director of strategic sourcing. Meanwhile, Master-Bilt selected Chris Greer as its continuous improvement manager.

Clouse has more than 20 years of business sales and service experience and most recently worked as an account/service manager for Rieck Services, a Dayton-area HVAC and plumbing services provider. His responsibilities include all aspects of Globe’s after sales support and he will also manage field service companies, technical support, and parts distribution operations.

The hire comes following Clouse’s recent completion of a leadership program at the University of Dayton. “The Emerging Leadership Certificate has challenged me to be a more effective leader,” he said. “The program helped me reflect on my own experiences and I was able to identify qualities that I liked and disliked about past managers. I’ve developed a leadership style that will empower associates to be part of a team and we will grow together.”

“Brian brings experience, enthusiasm, and strong customer focus to this role,” said Lisa Todd, executive vice president at Globe. “His commitment to excellence will propel Globe to even higher levels of customer satisfaction.”

At Standex, Madla took over as director of strategic sourcing on Aug. 20. As part of his new role, he is tasked with leading the RSG’s material cost reductions. He has more than 20 years of sourcing and procurement experience and most recently worked for Crown Iron Works.

“Isaac’s broad experience will help us drive one of the key objectives for the RSG,” Standex Senior Vice President of Operations Bryan Wadie said. “This is an exciting time for RSG as Isaac will allow us to broaden our focus and continue the work our current team has been driving.”

Finally, Chris Greer became Master-Bilt’s continuous improvement manager effective Aug. 20 following 10 years of manufacturing and management experience, most recently with Milwaukee Tool Co. Greer’s role is to drive operational excellence initiatives and he is now responsible for developing consistent improvement in Master-Bilt’s manufacturing operation.

“The primary focus for Chris will be to help develop new continuous improvement projects going forward,” Vice President of Operations Tom Machingo said. “We are very excited about the opportunities to improve and implement best-practice training methods and tools.”
