An Auckland business and marketing expert has been appointed general manager of guestroom products leader R Weatherdon.
Bronson Chin brings a background in IT, marketing and supply chain management to the role with one of Australia Pacific’s premier suppliers of guestroom products.
Bronson’s remit covers business development, operations and logistics, with Weatherdon attracted by a diverse skill-set which “enhances his approach to clients, working across all sectors of the industry from refurbishment and refits, to advising hotel management launching new properties”.
The family-owned and operated business, established in 1975, manufactures its own appliances as well as delivering brands from other quality suppliers.
“It’s a fast-moving industry and at the same time, we are always adding to and refining our range of over 600 products, including the well-known Nero range of electrical appliances, all designed specifically for heavy-duty wear and tear,” said Bronson.
“The position provides a terrific opportunity to work with diverse clients on everything from dormitories to luxury lodges, as well as back-of-house facilities.
“Furthermore, Weatherdon is a family-owned company that has been in the business for over 40 years, so there is a deep history of expert advice and a solid reputation to draw from.”
The company supplies more than 1,600 hotels in Australia and New Zealand.
