Kyle Forman has become president of Krowne, a New Jersey-based foodservice equipment manufacturer. He takes over from his father, Roger Forman, who served as Krowne’s president for 36 years. Roger assumed the leadership post from Peter Miller, his uncle, making Kyle the third generation to lead the family business.
Kyle steps into this role after working in a variety of departments at Krowne over the past 10 years. As vice president, he launched the company’s 3D and virtual reality bar configuration platform. He also launched a bartender ambassador program, infusing five bartenders into Krowne’s product development team to help drive innovation through experience-driven design. He also created virtual reality and augmented reality bar design tools to provide customers with an immersive design experience and virtual bartender training programs.
Krowne’s products range from custom underbar and refrigeration, to hand sinks, faucets and gas hoses.
Major changes during Roger’s tenure includes growing the factory from 30,000 to 200,000 square feet.
