NEW ZEALAND: BFM Global appoints two new key staff members
25th March 2019
BFM Global, Auckland, New Zealand, is known internationally for its BFM® fitting, a revolutionary, patented snap-fit flexible connector system which is being installed by some of the world’s largest manufacturers. In response to rapid growth over the past 12 months the company has made two important additions to its management team. Singapore-based Jason Chan joins the company as business development manager, Asia whilst Mike Buntain has been appointed as operations manager, a newly created role in the company’s head office and manufacturing base in Auckland.
These new announcements follow the recent employment late last year of general manager, Cameron Allison and business development manager – Americas, Andy Berg.
Jason Chan, a highly experienced sales and account manager, will be responsible for supporting BFM fitting’s existing distributors and customers throughout Asia, as well as further developing the company’s Asian market position.
Supporting the work that Jason Chan and BFM’s other business development managers are doing around the world will be BFM Global’s other new appointee, Mike Buntain.
As operations manager, he will be responsible for driving continuous improvement and production efficiency throughout BFM’s facility in Auckland.
Buntain is an accomplished operations leader and engineer with over 14 years’ experience in operations and project management, including eight years with Kohler New Zealand and five years with Tru-Test New Zealand Ltd. He holds a Master of Mechanical Engineering degree from the University of Auckland. www.bfmfitting.com
