Electrolux Group Australia and New Zealand has appointed Belinda Toner to the role product line director – food preparation and wellbeing, effective immediately.

Toner brings significant category and product line experience across leadership roles in both FMCG and major appliances, most recently as category manager at Pet Barn. She previously spent six years at Fisher & Paykel as senior product manager and general manager of product management.

Having driven portfolio optimisation to ensure correct positioning and mix of high performing products within the F&P portfolio, Toner was responsible for managing the product line P&L and effective execution of pricing across all channels (retail, commercial and ecommerce). She has also held roles with Whirlpool, Hagemeyer Brands, Nikon and Panasonic.

“Belinda’s deep experience in the major appliance industry and her strong strategic planning skills are perfectly suited to maximise growth in these key categories,” Electrolux ANZ managing director, Kurt Hegvold said.

Toner succeeds John Henley who retired earlier this year.
