Pioneers in silent rangehoods and one of Australia’s leading kitchen appliance brands, Schweigen, has appointed a new Queensland brand manager to support and manage the growth of the brand across the sunshine state.

Mark Easton joins the Schweigen team today. In his role, he will be responsible for cementing the brand’s position as market leaders in silent rangehoods, and further developing the business and Schweigen’s customer base across the state.

He brings a wealth of retail industry experience, predominately acquired at Whirlpool Home Appliances where he began as an Account Manager and worked his way through various roles including Product Manager Cooking, Business Development Manager, State, Regional and National Manager before moving into National Account Management.

After leaving Whirlpool, Mark tried his hand in a completely different role, owning and operating a Hire A Hubby franchise for two years, before the calling back to the home appliance industry came to him. Owning and running his own franchise gave him a fresh perspective on business which he will take to his new role at Schweigen.

Having spent the last two years at Sharp Corporation Australia as Channel Sales Manager for the Queensland business, Mark is eager to get back to the industry he enjoys the most.

“I’m excited to be coming back to the cooking market and joining such an innovative and customer focused company. Schweigen is doing some exciting things in the market and I’m thrilled to be part of their story and journey,” he said.

Anthony Fletcher, Managing Director, Schweigen, said Mark is a fantastic fit for the company and is looking forward to seeing his leadership take Schweigen to the next level in Queensland. “Mark’s key area of responsibility include business development, training up staff and adding value to our customers. He will also be responsible for promoting our unique ‘silent story’ to Queenslanders,” Mr Fletcher said. “We are looking forward to working with an industry specialist who understands our customers’ needs and has a passion for the business and the trade,” he said.
