Hoover has appointed Garry Smith as laundry product manager in its freestanding division.
Smith will be assisting with and implementing the company’s growth plans. He has previously worked as a buyer at a leading retail partner for the past 27 years.
Steve Macdonald, marketing director at Hoover Candy UK, said: “Garry’s wealth of experience makes him ideally placed to join the product development team, as we continue to build a range of appliances that meet and exceed consumer and market expectations. In fact, we have a vision for all our appliances to be 100% wi-fi connected by 2017.”
