McDonald Takes Charge of Haier Commercial Sales
The appointment reflects the Chinese appliance giant’s commitment to growth in the commercial industry, the company said in a statement today.
McDonald previously held the role of Product Manager at Haier Australia, where he showed “excellent leadership as well as a high level of knowledge and experience”.
“Charlie has already started to create opportunity in the commercial industry and we have complete confidence in his ability and skill to deliver exceptional results in this new role, which will be an integral part to the continued growth and success of the Haier business,” says General Manager for Haier, Richard Bowe.
Haier says it is “focussed on the commercial industry and decided a dedicated resource is now warranted to execute the company’s strategic plans to the sector and demand for Haier products. “
Lan Nguyen is replacing McDonald as Product Manager, and has been with Haier Australia for more than six years.
“Lan has a solid knowledge of the industry and we have absolute faith he will be highly successful in his new role, ” Mr Bowe.”
Both appointments are effective immediately. McDonald and Nguyen will report to Mr Bowe at Haier’s new head office in Macquarie Park, Sydney.
The Chinese giant also recently appointed industry veteran Glenn Shields-Biddle as National Sales Manager.
“We have every confidence that Team Haier will continue on its path of success and with the combined knowledge and experience of our new resources we are expecting greater results and exposure in the market place. We look forward to the opportunities ahead,” Bowe added.
