Haier Europe has today reported the death of Chris Bennett, its channel director for electrical specialists.
A well-known and highly-respected industry figure, Mr Bennett joined Hoover more than 13 years ago and during this time made a very significant contribution to the business.
After being unwell in 2019, Chris returned to the business in November 2020, but unfortunately and unexpectedly Chris passed away peacefully on Sunday, July 4.
David Meyerowitz, chief executive at Haier UK and Republic of Ireland, said: “Chris will be greatly missed both personally and professionally by friends, colleagues and many in the industry. All of our thoughts and support are with Chris’ family at this extremely sad time, especially his wife and three young children.”
