VAUGHAN, Ontario--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Marcone Canada is pleased to announce that Peter Szachlewicz has joined the company as its first president. Marcone Supply, the company's U.S. counterpart, established a presence in Canada with its 2010 buyout of APWagner. Since that time, Marcone Canada has experienced rapid growth in both its retail and wholesale operations, selling authorized OEM appliance parts, HVAC components, and property maintenance supplies. This success, coupled with its parent company's long-established position as the number one distributor to the United States, is shaping up to make Marcone Canada the industry frontrunner in its own country.
Mr. Szachlewicz was designated president in June of this year, and immediately began steering the company's development, which now includes increased distribution coverage throughout Vancouver. He comes to Marcone Canada with 15 years of sales and executive experience in the appliance business, serving as GM of Small Appliances at Electrolux Home Care Products and Brand & Product Sales Manager at the Whirlpool Corporation before that. Mr. Szachlewicz is a graduate of Sheridan College and a native Ontarian.
“Because of the quick expansion we've seen throughout North America and our plans to push further, it was time to bring in some expert talent at the highest level to guide Marcone Canada going forward,” says Dave Cook, SVP of Marcone Supply. “Peter has experience, commitment, and deep roots to Canada and this industry—exactly what we were looking for in a president.”
“I'm excited about joining Marcone Canada and honoured to be leading a great group of people,” says Peter Szachlewicz. “We have an exciting opportunity to bring innovative services and solutions to the appliance business. I look forward to growing our business in Canada, and more importantly, to helping our customers grow as well.”
Marcone Canada is North America's leading appliance parts distributor, a business strategically partnered with premier appliance brands and committed to innovating in B2B operations. The company celebrates a strong culture of corporate social responsibility, supporting organizations such as Ronald McDonald House Charities, the Vaughan Women's Shelter, and localized charities in the communities where it does business.
