Zip Water has welcomed Chris Roberts as national retail manager, who previously spent more than 13 years at Miele.

Roberts held several roles at Miele Australia including as national accounts manager, head of field sales and most recently, head of small domestic appliance sales. He also held roles in Germany as SAP business rollout expert and MCA business strategy manager, as well as sales director of Miele South Africa for two years.

“For the past 13 years I have worked for a single brand, Miele. I’ve had the privilege and good fortune to have held a number of roles, across several countries with Miele being one of the most consistent and valuable features of my professional career and in truth, life,” Roberts said.

“This tenure makes my recent move significant in choosing Zip Water as my new passion and professional endeavour. I’m proud to be a team member of a 75-year-old company producing exceptional products right here in Australia and exporting them to the world.

“Thank you Miele for the great opportunities, experiences and introducing me to many friends. I’m looking forward to a long and successful tenure with Zip Water, contributing to the ongoing success of a great Australian manufacturer.”
