To support business growth.
Fujitsu General has confirmed two management appointments including a newly created sales management role as well as a new marketing manager.
Prior to Christmas, Ed Jackson commenced as National Retail Sales Manager, while Katherine Bond has been appointed as Brand Manager of Trade Marketing.
Jackson has over 16 years of experience in appliances and consumer electronics. Most recently he was National Accounts Manager at Smeg Australia for four years and prior to this worked as a Channel Manager for Panasonic for seven years.
Fujitsu General GM sales and marketing, David Smith, told Appliance Retailer that Jackson’s role has been specifically created within the company to service national retail customers, and is based in Melbourne.
“A focused resource was required to continue to drive our significant retail business, growing this channel with existing customers along with charting our future growth,” Smith said.
“With an extensive background in channel sales and enterprise marketing, we are confident Ed and Katherine will deliver significant value to the business as Fujitsu General continues to grow its presence in the retail, commercial and dealer market,” he added.
Bond will be responsible for managing all trade marketing activities. Prior to joining Fujitsu General, Bond held a number of roles within the marketing department at Fuji Xerox Australia. She most recently held the position of the national events and marketing programs executive where she was responsible for driving large-scale events, marketing initiatives, branding and strategic partnerships. Bond fills the role recently vacated by Linda Louskos.
