SYDNEY: Nilfisk-Advance’s newly appointed Victorian consumer account manager, Jon Patterson, is experienced in appliances following 13 years as the owner and manager of Retravision Coburg and 12 years as the Sunbeam Victorian state sales manager.

"Nilfisk has a reputation for not only providing premium quality and thoughtfully designed products, it also has a synergistic, service-oriented approach to its clients,” said Patterson.

“The company’s philosophy, more than 100 years of history and tradition of innovation really attracted me to the role and I look forward to working with the brand to address individual retailer’s needs.”

According to Hiland, the Nilfisk brand has achieved substantial growth over the past few years and the company looks to Patterson to contribute to this growth.

“We hope to continue to grow the Nilfisk brand in Australia and Jon brings with him many years of invaluable experience on both sides of the fence to help us achieve this.”
