Haier Group mourns the passing of Chris Bennett

Haier Europe has sadly reported the passing of Chris Bennett, Channel Director – Electrical Specialists.

A well-known and highly-respected industry figure, Mr Bennett joined Hoover more than 13 years ago and during this time made a very significant contribution to the business.

A highly valued member of the UK senior leadership team at Haier, he had recently been working alongside the commercial and logistics teams, leading a successful project to deliver operational excellence.

After being unwell in 2019, Mr Bennett returned to the business in November 2020, but unfortunately and unexpectedly he passed away peacefully on Sunday 4 July 2021.

David Meyerowitz, CEO at Haier UK and RoI, said: “Chris will be greatly missed both personally and professionally by friends, colleagues and many in the industry. All of our thoughts and support are with Chris’s family at this extremely sad time, especially his wife and three young children.”
