Sanderson IT Software & Services LogoSanderson, the publicly-owned, UK provider of manufacturing and supply chain IT solutions to the food and drink industry, has promoted its sector specialist Mike Gallagher to be Sales Director of its rapidly growing Food & Drink division.

In the last 12 months Mike has been instrumental in achieving a number of new business sales for Sanderson Food & Drink as fast-growing food and beverage firms invest in its industry-specific ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) solutions in order to meet compliance demands and to enable profitable growth.

Commenting on the increased uptake of Sanderson UnityF8, its business IT solution exclusively focused on food and drink manufacturing, Mike Gallagher, Sales Director, said:

“The common thread among our new customers is that they are expanding and had outgrown the limits of generic business software packages. To survive, they’d had to use manual or disparate systems to manage tasks such as Traceability, Allergens Control, New Product Development etc. Today the value of business process integration and automation, and of sharpened competitive edge through information exploitation, is being recognised more than ever. Using a unified, sector-specific business system is the best way for them to achieve this and thrive.

Sanderson Food & Drink provides an ERP system that combines specialist food and drink sector functionality and focus with reliable, cost effective technology. I am excited in this role to expand our position as a one-stop-shop and proven, long-term IT partner for today’s most ambitious and fast-growing food and drink companies.”

Commenting on Mike’s new position, Roger Stares, Managing Director of the Sanderson Food & Drink Division said:

“Mike has exceptional technical skills, in-depth business analysis expertise and extensive knowledge of the food and drink industry. He’s particularly attuned to the demands of growing food and drink businesses and delivering ROI-based solutions. Sanderson has experienced record sales for our latest manufacturing products and in his new position Mike will help us continue to deliver success for our customers and ourselves.”
