Kitchen appliance manufacturer Magimix has appointed Steve Punter as general manager of its UK business.
Mr Punter (pictured) will be responsible for overseeing the UK management, brand development and product planning.
He will work closely with the full UK team at Magimix’s headquarters in Surrey, with a particular focus on driving ‘best-in-class’ product development.
He brings extensive electronics industry knowledge to the role, having spent his career in the consumer appliance and technology markets, and has previously worked for brands that include Gibson Innovations, Philips and Henkel.
Mr Punter said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the Magimix team and look forward to bringing my experience to the table and learning from the dynamic Magimix team. As the number-one, premium food processor brand in the market, the Magimix name acts as mark of quality and I look forward to helping to build and maintain its fan base and credentials in the UK.
“Returning from three-and-a-half years in Hong Kong to the idyllic town of Godalming, where the company headquarters are and where I spent my first 30 years, makes it all that more special for both me and my family.”
Mr Punter will start in his new role on November 7.
