Who's been a-moving and a-shaking this week? People changes at Bosch Power Tools, ITW Proline and Apprentice Training New Zealand.

Darrin Crook starts as Bosch Power Tools' new Key Account Manager for Mitre 10 New Zealand in December. 

Darrin has significant Key Account experience over the past 13 years and is an expert in the world of execution of consumables. Darrin is looking forward to drawing on this experience in his new role whilst embracing the hardware industry.

"Sam and the team in NZ are excited by the opportunities ahead. Together with Sam’s experience, we are poised to achieve our goal of doubling our business with Mitre 10 NZ by 2020," says Bosch PT's Troy Scragg.


Warren Lowe, National Sales manager at ITW Proline, recently announced he would be retiring at the end of this month.

After almost 30 years working for the company in both Australia and New Zealand, he says: "It was not an easy decision to make after being part of such a dynamic company and the hardworking team here at ITW Proline New Zealand, as well as walking away from the relationships, both personal and professional."

Go well Warren, we'll miss you at the Hardware Awards!


Susanne Martin is the new General Manager of Apprentice Training New Zealand (ATNZ), New Zealand’s largest employer of apprentices in mechanical engineering and related industries, including automotive, manufacturing, print and packaging.

She joins ATNZ in Auckland after senior executive roles at Crossmark and Philips in both New Zealand and Australia and will be responsible for the management and development of the apprentice programmes.
