SMEG, the iconic Italian designer appliance manufacturer, announces the hiring of Jason Sherwood as the Northeast Regional Manager for SMEG USA, spearheading the company’s sales efforts in its American home base of the Northeast Corridor, New England, and Mid-Atlantic. Sherwood will be responsible for overseeing interactions with buying groups and kitchen design trade representatives in the region, and will manage major appliance sales throughout the area.
“Jason was already familiar with SMEG as a brand, and really seemed to understand our underlying philosophy,” said Paul McCormack, the brand’s national-level Director of Sales and Marketing, continuing, “his excitement about the innovations SMEG has already brought to the appliance industry, and his enthusiasm to build on those successes moving forward really speak to the reason he’s in his new position. Having worked with him before, I’m really looking forward to seeing what his energy and experience will bring us as we continue to grow throughout America.”
Hailing from Annapolis, Md., and so, a native of the region he will be managing, Sherwood is an alum of the German appliance brand Miele, as well as a previous long-time member of the mobile device, application, and security community at Blackberry, culminating in a role with the enterprise server team there. He brings a wealth of sales experience in multiple industries to SMEG, as well as a strong rooting in kitchen design, critical to SMEG’s identity. His cosmopolitan educational and industry background will give him a diverse perspective on the company’s efforts as it moves forward.
“What SMEG has done, blending technological innovation with such recognizable, beautiful design elements, is just incredible, especially our many partnerships with renowned designers and architects,” said Sherwood of his enthusiasm for his new workplace. He continued, “I’m extremely excited to be a part of the company as it reaches the largest audience it’s ever had, and to get to contribute to our growth goals, roadmaps, and business development. I’m all-in on SMEG as we move forward into the latter half of 2021 and beyond.”
