Electrolux Professional today announced national sales manager Darren Lockley as its new head of region for the UK & Ireland.
Lockley takes over the post formerly held by Doug Walker, who was recently promoted to head of Asia Pacific, based in Singapore.
Lockley has been with Electrolux for seven years and takes up the new role with immediate effect. As head of region, he will be responsible for the complete Professional division in the UK and Ireland.
Philippe Zavattiero, senior VP Commercial Organisation Western Europe at Electrolux Professional, says the company has found someone with the right qualities and strong existing management team to continue to drive the business forward.
“This appointment will further help to strengthen the two divisions of Electrolux Professional in the UK & Ireland and continue to push the business in the right direction. I am certain that Darren will have a positive impact in his new role,” said Zavattiero.
Lockley said he was thrilled to have been given the opportunity to take on the responsibility for Electrolux Professional in the UK and Ireland.
“Having worked for the company for seven years I know our whole world in this business is about increasing market share in the UK,” he commented. “Our aim, as ever, is to realise this through continuing to expand the support we provide through pre-sales, at-sales and post sales, to our customer networks across professional laundry and foodservice.”
