Oneida Ltd. recently announced that Foster Sullivan has been promoted to president of the company’s foodservice division. Sullivan was previously a senior vice president and general manager of the foodservice division.

“Foster has led Oneida’s foodservice business with distinction,” said James E. Joseph, president and chief executive officer of Oneida. “His promotion reflects the significant achievements the group has made in strengthening Oneida’s customer relationships, expanding our premium and luxury brand portfolio, and driving innovation through new product designs and categories. Oneida has a strong position in the foodservice business, and it is an important contributor to our growth.”

Prior to being appointed general manager of Oneida’s foodservice division, Sullivan headed the company’s hotel and gaming sales group. He joined Oneida in 1996, when Oneida acquired THC Systems, where Sullivan was a senior executive. Earlier in his career, he held sales positions at the Edward Don Co., a leading equipment and supply distributor to the foodservice industry.

“Oneida serves some of the biggest names in the hospitality, travel and gaming sectors-a global market that is expanding at the luxury high end,” said Sullivan. “Oneida is one of the few companies that has the global presence to serve this market, and I believe our high-quality products, innovative designs and renowned commitment to outstanding customer service will continue to distinguish us in the marketplace.”
