Mitsubishi Electric Australia has announced promotions across the company's management structure after posting a fourth consecutive record-breaking financial year.
Mitsubishi Electric general manager of national sales, Zane Barron, said the changes reflect the company's ongoing commitment to meet the dynamic requirements of the business and its customers.
Several new management appointments have been made within the company’s HVAC division and were implemented at the commencement of the new Japanese financial year.
Rob Seeley, Brett Morgan and Mark Lo Basso have been promoted to the position of HVAC state managers while Geoff Watson has been appointed HVAC sales manager for Victoria and Tasmania.
Joining the management team in the Melbourne office, Watson has been with the company for 12 months and has brought a wealth of experience from working in managerial roles in the HVAC industry both in Australia and overseas for the past 20 years.
Watson's promotion will allow him to share his knowledge with the Notting Hill-based team whilst he focuses on growing sales across Victoria and Tasmania.
“Mitsubishi Electric is a fantastic organisation and has a great culture, the entire team are extremely passionate about what they do,” Watson said.
“I’m excited to pass on my knowledge and I look forward to growing the business across the southern states with the team’s support.”
Mick McKay has been promoted to the position of HVAC sales manager for Western Australia.
McKay brings 23 years of industry experience to his new role, and was previously a senior HVAC sales executive. He was appointed to his new role after Mark Lo Basso’s promotion to HVAC state manager for South Australia and Western Australia.
McKay said he is excited to have the opportunity to expand the dealer base and drive product growth in the WA market.
“This is a very important role for Western Australia as there is great opportunity for growth here in the domestic environment,” he said.
As an experienced manager, McKay will work with a team of six direct reports who he hopes to mentor.
“I look forward to the new challenges and am confident that we’re going to build a fantastic rapport with local clients. We’ve got a fantastic team and premium products,” he said.
Steve Hughes will make a return to the company to support Brett Morgan in the position of HVAC sales manager, South East Queensland.
Commenting on the new appointments, Barron said the new management team provide an abundance of commercial experience from across the HVAC industry.
“Together, we will continue to support the market with quality products, innovations and services,” he said.
“These appointments are a great fit for our business, team and customers.”
