David Meyerowitz joined the Haier group in 1990 and served as group sales director and chief operating officer.

During his long service, he has been involved in four UK/Ireland mergers and acquisitions.

Commenting on his retirement, David Meyerowitz said: “I am filled with a profound sense of gratitude and nostalgia.

“This experience, which began so many years ago, has been nothing short of extraordinary. It has been a journey of growth, of learning, of overcoming challenges, and of forging life-long connections.

“My sincere thanks and appreciation goes to all my colleagues, mentors, customers, suppliers, press and community representatives, both past and present. Many of these have become close friends.

“Through their outstanding support, guidance, and camaraderie we have created some wonderful memories, conquered seemingly impossible challenges, and enjoyed the celebration of so many remarkable successes together.

He continued: “Retirement from operational roles is not an end, but a new beginning.

“I am commencing some exciting opportunities in non-executive directorships, advisory, mentoring and coaching roles.

“The first of which is to chair the Business and Enterprise Board for the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.

“Importantly, whilst gaining these new experiences, this new chapter also allows me to spend more quality time with my wonderful wife Helen who has been by my side always offering her steadfast support, encouragement and understanding whilst providing a loving family foundation upon which to deliver my professional dreams.

“Now we can have more time with our loved ones and to embark on some adventures together that have long been put on hold.

“I am leaving the business in the capable hands of those that will continue the 1Vision journey to become the home appliances number one in the UK and Ireland.

“I have no doubt that the brands, customers, and colleagues (the power of three) will continue to deliver great success together in the future.  I look forward to watching on and to meeting when our paths cross again. Meanwhile continue to Dream, Believe, Achieve.”
