Kitchen appliance manufacturer Gorenje has announced that it has promoted its national sales manager, Stuart Benson, to the role of sales director.
Stuart (pictured) boasts more than 25 years’ experience within the appliance and kitchen industry, and joined the company in early 2013 as national sales manager for the UK & Ireland.
Gorenje UK managing director Jernej Hren commented: “I was delighted to be able to offer Stuart the promotion to sales director. Since joining, he has been integral in taking the sales team forward and has been successful in raising Gorenje’s profile across the UK.”
Stuart added: “As a company Gorenje is constantly developing innovative new products and design lines to meet the ever-changing needs of the consumer, which makes my role both fast-paced and exciting. I am thrilled with my promotion and looking forward to growing the business further.”
2015 has seen the company make several announcements including the launch of a new generation of built-in cooking appliances, and the availability of its Retro collection via John Lewis’ online storefront. Most recently, Gorenje unveiled a new design line with internationally acclaimed designer Philippe Starck, which will be available in the UK later this year.
Jernej concluded: “Stuart’s promotion is one of many highlights of the year so far and we are looking forwarding to the next couple of months, as we bring some exciting new innovations to market.”
