Camberwell Electrics has welcomed Rob Hoorn to its management team as supplier liaison in a full-time capacity.

He will be responsible for coordinating product selection with Narta, BSR Group and Designer Appliances, as well as working on the shop floor to assist with customer enquiries.

Hoorn brings over 30 years of industry experience across various roles. He started his career as state manager for JH Wilberforce representing Robinhood, Braun and St George Appliances.

He then worked as sales manager for Miele Australia before being appointed to managing director for Andi-Co Australia in 2004. Hoorn was at the helm for more than eight years before heading up Sampford IXL as CEO for three years, announcing his retirement in July 2015.

Camberwell Electrics owner, Hans Vanderstadt welcomed Rob to the team as he brings strong management skills and a long history in the industry.

“We are excited for Rob to join the business. He is a great asset, and we are confident that with his in-depth industry knowledge, he will support our growth and help us make continual improvements in the ever-changing retail landscape,” he told Appliance Retailer.
