UPDATED: Current.com.au has learned that Matthew Ahern has joined Italian rivals Smeg Australia. We understand his new role will be largely similar to the one he had at Sampford IXL, and he has retained his national training manager title.
During his time at Sampford IXL, Ahern gained a reputation for his passion and commitment in helping retailers understand how these appliances worked and how to close sales.
Sampford IXL has not named a replacement.
