Regional Vice President - IN
W. Matthew Swift has spent 24 years in the foodservice and hospitality industry, most recently as Vice-President of Sales & Marketing for Jackson MSC. His six year tenure with Jackson focused on the development and improvement of Jackson’s Brand business both domestically and internationally. Matt joined Zink Foodservice in December 2009.
Prior to joining Jackson, Matt began working for CMA Dishmachines in 1993 as Director of National Accounts, progressing to Regional Sales Director and ultimately as Vice President of Sales & Marketing. He was affiliated with CMA/JohnsonDiversey for over 13 years where he developed both products and services for the traditional foodservice equipment market while increasingly expanding their base of chemical dealer sales to independent chemical supply companies.
Matt began his foodservice equipment career with Polar King International as a Regional Account Manager and was promoted to Director of Sales & Marketing one year later. In addition, he spent four years as a consultant and manufacturer’s representative when he created Swift Marketing Group, which successfully promoted his former employers as an independent contractor. During this period, Matt created a national leasing company for equipment rentals, and also developed several patents relative to the warewash industry.
This vast base of experience with chains, dealers, chemical companies and distributors has provided Matt a unique perspective and understanding of the entire base of business and marketing strategies within the foodservice industry.
