Appliance manufacturer Miele has named John Pickering as its new managing director for its GB subsidiary, with Pickering succeeding Simon Grantham, who has left the business.

Pickering has spent the last eight years at fast-moving consumer goods business Mars, most recently working as general manager for Mars Ireland.

“I am hugely excited to join Miele GB,” he said. “The brand’s reputation for quality of product and service speaks for itself. I am looking forward to meeting the team and our customers, listening to their challenges and understanding how everything works in what will be a new sector for me.

“I hope to bring an outside perspective which I am confident will add value and build on what is already a fantastic business.”

Noël Smets, regional managing director for north west Europe at Miele, added: “John has a proven track record in achieving sustainable, quality business growth built through leading strong engaged teams.

“He is used to working for a family business and shares many of the Miele values around employee engagement, exemplary customer service, integrity and quality. We very much look forward to him joining our team in the UK.”
