Leading Edge Group has welcomed Cameron Harvey as head of appliances, succeeding Margaret Terry who has joined Camera House as category manager.

Prior to joining Leading Edge, Harvey was national key account manager at OPPO Mobile for The Good Guys, Bing Lee and Big W for two years.

Prior to OPPO, he was with the Harvey Norman/Domayne group for about six years. He started his tenure as store manager at Harvey Norman Maitland with Greg Marron and later became commercial BDM at Domayne Maitland with Harley Saxby.

Prior to these roles, Harvey has worked with other major retailers including Telstra, Vodafone, Virgin and Crazy John’s in various store management and head office positions.

As head of appliances at Leading Edge Group, Harvey will support members in all forms from product ranging, marketing and business strategy, opening members and communities to new suppliers and brand opportunities, positioning independent retailer members to compete locally and nationally online and in-store, and leveraging strategic business growth for members and suppliers.

Commenting on his new role, Harvey said, “I’m excited to be joining Leading Edge as the new head of appliances to support our independent retailer members across Australia. I’m looking forward to taking the appliances category to new heights as we enter a new world of retailing post-Covid.”
