With two new appointments.

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Air Conditioners Australia (MHIAA) has welcomed Amir Naqvi and Damian Hatch as supply chain manager and national accounts manager, respectively.

The new team members join the company shortly after it moved to new state-of-the-art premises in Regents Park.

As a seasoned supply chain professional, Naqvi brings 15 years of expertise to the team. He was previously involved in reviewing and optimising supply chain structures for large multinationals, as well as management of transport, logistics, warehousing, project and change.

Naqvi believes that logistics play a pivotal role in building a company’s reputation and in expanding its customer base. “By ensuring that robust processes and back up plans are in place, we can deliver seamless, safe logistics,” he said.

“I am a strong believer in team work, and I will work closely with my new team to make sure that we achieve all our objectives. I was fortunate to receive a short contract with MHIAA prior to my full-time employment at the company. It gave me the opportunity to immerse myself in the brand and I immediately noticed the friendly and cooperative culture.”

Hatch, who brings years of trade experience, will oversee MHIAA’s national reseller and retail customers. He has gained a wealth of business acumen whilst running his own business. He then moved into the corporate space where he spent almost two decades in sales and client services.

“I have dealt with key national accounts in the past and pride myself on the strong and established relationships that I have built over time,” he said.

Aligning to the company’s intrepid goals for the future, he will be responsible for developing and implementing a sustainable sales strategy across Australia and New Zealand.

“I am pleased and privileged to have joined MHIAA and I look forward to helping them bring their goals to life. It’s an exciting time to join MHIAA and I am ready to start working with the national accounts to create an even bigger presence for MHIAA in the industry.”

MHIAA general manager sales and planning, Adrian Brown said the new appointments give the company ample opportunities for expansion, refinement and improved collaboration. “We welcome Amir and Damian to our family and we look forward to the continued success of MHIAA in the market.”
