Nuheara Limited (ASX: NUH) (“Company” or “Nuheara”), transforming the way people hear by creating game-changing hearing solutions that are accessible and affordable, is pleased to announce the appointment of former Samsung Vice President, Mr Philip Newton, to the newly created role of Chief Sales Officer (CSO). Reporting directly to the CEO, the CSO assumes responsibility for global sales, which previously formed part of a combined sales and marketing function, very successfully managed from the Company’s inception by Nuheara co-founder Mr David Cannington. Due to Nuheara’s global growth, Mr Cannington will now specialise as the Company’s Chief Marketing Officer (CMO).
Nuheara CEO, Justin Miller, stated, “We are incredibly excited to have someone of Philip’s calibre and track record with a technology heavyweight such as Samsung, join our Company. Philip’s senior executive roles over the past decade with Samsung culminated in his appointment as a Corporate Vice President (CVP), where he was directly responsible for a business with revenue in excess of $1 billion. Philip is a perpetual overachiever. As the only Australian ever appointed as a CVP reporting directly to Samsung head office in Korea, his achievements and capabilities are unrivaled.”
“My first experience of Nuheara was seeing their IQBuds™ win the 2017 innovation award at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. Accordingly, I sought out their booth and tested the IQbuds™. I quickly realised how game-changing their new technology really was – and how far it had surpassed the market in creating a smart hearing device. I have followed them ever since,” said Mr Newton.
“I am a big believer in doing something you are passionate about, something you can put your time and energy into simply because you love it. For me, Nuheara is that something.”
“I am thrilled to be able to put my name to the Nuheara brand. I am looking forward to the opportunities that lay ahead as we strive to make Nuheara a global household name.”
Prior to Samsung, Mr. Newton was the Managing Director of BenQ Australia, a company he grew from its inception to revenue in excess of $120 Million over the course of three years. Prior to that, Mr
Newton held various roles with Mitsubishi Electric Australia that culminated in his appointment to the Board of Directors whilst maintaining an executive role as Group General Manager.
