October 12, 2011

Eden Springs Group has a new man in Switzerland: Pascal Despraz. With over twenty years experience in the food and beverage sector, Despraz will have 78 employees, placed in more than ten different locations, and will head the approaching launch of the new division of Eden Springs for coffee and hot beverages solutions. Despraz will be the main person responsible for the Swiss subsidiary, which has a turnover of 20 million Swiss francs.

Recently Eden Springs announced its new range of coffee solutions as part of its wider drinking solutions concept. The Group’s Swiss section has currently more than 23,500 watercoolers set up throughout the country.

Graduated by the Ecole Hôtelière de Genève, Despraz’s last senior-level position was as operations director at SV Group —a Swiss preeminent catering company which operates in Switzerland, Germany and Austria—, running over two hundred employees and a turnover of 25 millions Swiss francs. He reached that position after being regional manager and was promoted to business development manager at SV Group; before working at the Swiss group, Pascal was in charge of managing for La Cave Vaudoise, a wine conglomerate.

CEO of Eden Springs Group, Raanan Zilbermann, said: “Despraz brings a new dimension to our Swiss company. With his solid experience of the hotel and catering industry and a strong track record in business development, Despraz will undoubtedly help us develop our market share in Switzerland. Despraz’s appointment strengthens our commitment to offering industry-leading drinking solutions for the workplace, coupled with unparalleled customer service.”

Eden Springs is  water supplier for the workplace, offering direct delivery of bottled water for watercoolers, plumbed-in filter systems and small pack bottles.

From Watercoolers Europe, we wish Pascal Despraz the best so that this will be a new stage on the road to a stronger Industry, offering the best quality for every customer.
