Quiet Mark has appointed Richard Wilkinson as its new technical manager, with Wilkinson joining to “oversee technical evaluations and award assessments”, according to the organisation.

In his new role, Wilkinson will be responsible for delivering “rigorous technical evaluations and award assessments across all industry categories in the domestic and commercial sectors”.

He will also manage product testing alongside Quiet Mark’s acoustic teams in London, New York and Germany to support the growth of the organisation’s award programme.

Wilkinson has joined the organisation from Good Housekeeping Institute where he held the role of appliance and household testing manager. He also spent 14 years at Which?, most recently as senior business researcher for laundry, dishwashing and refrigeration products.

“I have been tracking Quiet Mark’s rapid growth over the last six years, witnessing the resulting groundswell of interest in the quiet revolution from consumers and businesses alike,” said Wilkinson.

“It’s a very exciting time to be joining the team as we expand our product focuses and continue to grow into new geographic markets.”

Quiet Mark founder and managing director Poppy Szkiler added: “Richard’s 16 years of experience in household appliance and product testing is hard to find. We are delighted to have found the best person to drive our testing offering and believe we have identified a truly unique individual.

“He has experience of working with like-minded consumer champions and he not only understands Quiet Mark’s mission but can also help to evolve our product testing offering across the board.”
