Whirlpool UK Appoints New Kitchen Channel Director

Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, parent company to KitchenAid, Whirlpool, Hotpoint and Indesit, has appointed Lee Collett to Kitchen Channel Director.

Lee joined Whirlpool in 2011 and has excelled in several roles within the business, including National Account Manager and Channel Controller. As National Account Manager, Lee was responsible for building and maintaining relationships with major eCommerce retailers including AO and Amazon. Lee also played an important part in the acquisition of Indesit Company by Whirlpool UK Appliances Ltd, taking the lead within the Whirlpool sales team. Lee then took on the role of Field Sales Manager, responsible for sales and distribution of the Whirlpool, Hotpoint and Indesit brands within the Independent Channel.

Recently, Lee’s role of Channel Controller provided an insight and experience in managing the distribution of the premium brand, KitchenAid. His new role as Kitchen Channel Director will see Lee take on further responsibility across all four of the Whirlpool UK brands, working with kitchen distributors, kitchen studios, builder’s merchants, housebuilders, the contract market and national DIY and kitchen retailers.

Lee says of his new appointment: “I hope to bring a wealth of experience of the entire business into the Kitchen Channel at Whirlpool UK. Through many years working in various roles, I have an in-depth understanding of how our business works and areas in which we can strengthen.

“As I take on my new role I hope to see steady growth for the Hotpoint and Indesit brands, in addition to increased awareness and exposure of our more premium brands, KitchenAid and Whirlpool.”

Andrzej Tuleja, General Manager, UK and Ireland, Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, says: “We wish Lee much success in his new role and I have great confidence that his skills, experience and enthusiasm will be a huge credit to Lee and his new responsibilities. We have four very strong brands in our UK portfolio, with which we’re committed to see grow and flourish, and I look forward to seeing Lee use his expertise to continue to push this forward.”
