George Bannyan

Director Commercial Sales


Born and raised in Sydney, Australia, I had the privilege of learning commercial refrigeration from my father. Since I was a child, you could find me on job sites working with him on weekends and school vacations. At age 16, I followed this passion to begin an apprenticeship that I completed at age 20. Thereafter, I worked with various supermarket refrigeration companies where I gained valuable experience. A highlight of my career was building the first Minus 5 Ice Bar in Sydney, Australia. At age 28 I returned to the family business where I was able to work with my father again. Also at that time, I furthered my education to become an engineer in HVAC, Refrigeration and Project Management. In 2013 I moved to California from Australia, where I continued my career in commercial refrigeration in the Food Service industry. In 2014 I moved into engineering, and in 2015 I transitioned into sales. In 2018 I joined FE Company expanding my knowledge with various manufactures. In 2022 I was promoted to become the director of commercial sales with CE-Sales overseeing the Commercial Refrigeration customers and running a great team, with this opportunity it brings great experience and value.
