Whirlpool UK Employee Recognised as ‘Account Manager of the Year’ for AO.com

Claire Lewis, National Account Controller, Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited, has won the ‘Account Manager of the Year’ award at AO.com’s first ever supplier conference.

Claire has worked at Peterborough based Whirlpool UK Appliances Limited – parent company to Whirlpool, Hotpoint, Indesit and KitchenAid – since 2014, and has proved herself to be a real asset to the commercial team. Previous to her role as Account Controller for AO.com, Claire looked after Dixons as an Account Manager.

“I am delighted to be recognised as AO.com’s ‘Account Manager of the Year’. Awards like this are not just a recognition of one person, as it takes a whole team to give a good impression. I’d like to thank colleagues in both customer and trade marketing, planning, logistics, as well as my team. We are all the face of Whirlpool UK and this is as much a reflection of you as it is me”, comments Claire.

Consumers can find major domestic appliances from Whirlpool, Hotpoint and Indesit on AO.com, as well as small domestic appliances from KitchenAid. Each brand has its own dedicated section on the AO website, where consumers can familiarise themselves with the products and browse the various ranges.

Paul Whyte, Purchasing Director, AO.com, says: “Since working with AO, Claire has made some key, positive changes to the account, establishing great relationships with the buying team and beyond, plus recognising and demonstrating the AO values.”
