Haydon Myers becomes franchisee.

Harvey Norman has finalised the restructure of its GM roles with Haydon Myers moving from head office to become the electrical franchisee at the Caringbah store in Sydney’s southern shire.

Myers was appointed General Manager – Home Appliances in March 2012 and according to Harvey Norman executive director, David Ackery, he will be an excellent franchisee.

“Haydon has been talking to me about franchise opportunities for over a year,” Ackery told Appliance Retailer in an exclusive interview.

“We were waiting for the right opportunity and he has become the electrical franchisee at the Caringbah store.

“Haydon has been replaced in the role of General Manager – Home Appliances, by Lachlan Roach who was most recently a franchisee at Campbelltown and prior to this he was electrical franchisee in Dubbo. Lachlan is a star performer within our business and brings to the role an understanding of the metropolitan and regional dynamics of our business,” Ackery said.

The latest staff movements follow the recent shift by Rob Nelson from the role of General Manager – AV, to become the new proprietor of the Castle Hill store in Sydney. Nelson has been replaced by Ajay Calpakham.
