Mitsubishi Electric Australia has announced two new appointments within the company across the technology and product departments.
Ari Grimekis has been promoted to technical manager. With over 15 years’ experience in the HVAC industry, he is highly skilled in HVAC engineering, business development, project engineering, and electrical engineering.
Grimekis will be based at the company’s Sydney HQ and will manage technology training across the country and some international factories to teach internal staff about new and existing units. He will also continue to provide high-level expertise on how products should be designed, working closely with both factories on product development for the Australian market as well as customers to discuss their specific needs.
“My aim is to raise the standard of the world-class training that we do as a company and filter that through to our sales representatives and external consultants,” says Grimekis.
“I’m keen to support this through my knowledge from past experiences and passion for technology, improving products for the HVAC industry and providing the correct solutions for our customers.”
Arnav Maini has also returned to Mitsubishi Electric’s Australian team as senior product engineer, after gaining two years’ experience with Mitsubishi Electric UK. Maini has more than eight years in the industry and is an experienced product support engineer skilled in HVAC design, CAD and engineering management.
In his new role, Maini will provide product support for air conditioning products.
Working in the larger UK market and seeing first-hand the learning solutions they have to offer, Maini has gained experience around how a different market is currently tackling challenges which will eventually make their way to Australia.
Drawing on this experience, Maini says that there are some things happening in the UK that he wants to bring here, such as investing in resources to take training online.
“We want to not only sell the products but also ideas,” says Miani, “so it’s important that our sales team are 100 percent confident with our products.”
