Smeg UK appoints ‘Acting’ Head of Products

Smeg UK has announced the appointment of Laura Jones as Acting Head of Products. She will oversee all categories within the Smeg product portfolio during Lucy Dunstan’s maternity leave.

Ms Jones will focus particularly on Smeg’s extensive range cooking and built-in appliance ranges, making the most of her previous experience in these critical business areas.

She joins Smeg with a wealth of industry experience. Having previously held the position of Product Manager at Miele for eight years, she also worked at Le Creuset for a further four years in the same role.

Ms Jones will strengthen Smeg’s product team and will be instrumental in bringing new products to market and supporting its trade channels and customers identifying key product ranges, supporting new introductions and stock profiling.

Speaking of her appointment, Smeg UK Commercial Director, Jill Ashford, commented: “It is a great pleasure to have Laura on board. She knows our industry very well and has a wealth of knowledge she can bring to the team. We look forward to working with her.”
