SYDNEY: Panasonic Australia has lost two pivotal management staff: Panasonic trade marketing manager – consumer electronics group, Ritchie Djamhur and category marketing manager – home AV, Kym Pardey.

Djamhur has left Panasonic to take up a new position. Details of the new company and his role are unknown at this stage.

In another surprising departure, Panasonic Australia category marketing manger – home AV, Kym Pardey has tendered his resignation, and will leave the company at the end of April to pursue his own interests.

Pardey will immediately move to Europe to prepare for the World Triathlon championships to be held in Hawaii in October, after recently re-qualifying for the event in New Zealand.
