The Funky Appliance Company has appointed Jon Collings as marketing Consultant and part-time member of its Management Team.
Founder and CEO Joe Sillett commented: “We are delighted to welcome Jon Collings to the Funky team. Jon was marketing director at Gtech, the cordless vacuum company, which he helped take from £4m to £90m sales in five 5 years. When he contacted me on LinkedIn saying that our products had caught his eye, we arranged to meet to discuss our exciting opportunity, where it was clear that he shared our vision for the brand. His outstanding experience, most notably in the appliance market with Gtech and Vax will significantly strengthen our business and I am excited by the opportunity of working with him.”
Jon added: “It’s not often that I see something which I think is fresh and standout. Joe and his team have developed strong foundations for a very exciting future and I’m really looking forward to playing my part in taking the business to the next level in 2020. I see a fantastic opportunity for this business to become a household name.”
