Gorenje, the Slovenian manufacturer famed for its creative and innovative product design, is pleased to announce the promotion of Peter Forster-Dark to the position of National Sales Manager for the UK & Ireland.
Peter brings a wealth of experience to the role, having worked in the appliance industry for nearly 22 years. Before taking this new position, he was Gorenje’s National Account Manager for the south of the UK.
As National Sales Manager one of Peter’s key responsibilities is the day to day management of Gorenje’s business with CIH/Euronics, providing its team and its members with full support.
Peter says: “Gorenje is a brand that is growing exceptionally well throughout the independent retail market and the opportunities that the brand brings to the UK and Irish markets are exceptional. As a company, we have a clear focus to only supply via the independent channel and this dedicated support gives us an opportunity that many other manufacturers just cannot give to the retailer.
“The needs of the independent retailer are many and diverse, and the close working relationships we maintain offer real potential for all involved. The market leading five-year parts and labour guarantee that many Gorenje products have, only goes to reinforce the quality and reliability that is clearly evident throughout our range.
“I am exceptionally pleased and excited to be able to work within a market sector that is very close to my heart and together we will achieve great things. Despite market conditions, the future is bright for the independent retailer and Gorenje can make it even brighter!”
Bill Miller, Sales Director for Gorenje says: “Peter brings considerable experience and extensive product knowledge to the role. He will be a real asset to our business and our relationship with CIH. Peter is supported by a national account manager and both are able to focus even more on the needs of CIH and its members.”
