The Oneida Group Appoints Frank Biller National Sales Manager For Anchor Hocking Foodservice
Company Reintroduces Glass-focused Foodservice Business Following Divestiture of Oneida Foodservice Lines
Columbus, Ohio – March 21, 2019 – The Oneida Group has named Frank Biller, a 25-year veteran of the foodservice industry, as National Sales Manager for its Anchor Hocking foodservice business. The move comes as the company reintroduces and seeks to grow its glass-focused foodservice business following the divestiture of the Oneida foodservice lines earlier this year.
Having previously served from 2004-2014 in various foodservice leadership roles for Anchor Hocking, Biller will be responsible for leading and building the Anchor Hocking foodservice team as a prominent stand-alone entity, as The Oneida Group seeks to increase glass manufacturing capacity, grow its customer base and expand its presence in the hospitality market.
“Frank brings a wealth of experience to this role at an exciting time for our Anchor Hocking foodservice business,” said Bert Filice, President and Chief Sales & Marketing Officer of The Oneida Group. “Under his leadership, the Anchor Hocking sales team will reinforce our support and commitment to our longstanding distribution partners, while also focusing on new installations at the operator level using Anchor Hocking’s quality glass portfolio and exciting innovation. We are delighted to welcome him back.”
“Anchor Hocking is a well-known brand widely recognized for its high-quality products,” said Biller. “This position presented a wonderful opportunity to return to where I started in tabletop 15 years ago. It will be a labor of love, and the capstone of my career, to be a part of the team that drives Anchor Hocking’s market re-entry with new energy and focus.”
Prior to returning to The Oneida Group, Biller was Director of Foodservice Sales for Vertex China. Before that, he was National Director of Foodservice Sales with Arc International. He is a graduate of Vanderbilt University.
