John Boukouras appointed General Manager Symach Australia

Symach producer is pleased to announce that John Boukouras has been appointed General Manager, Australia, overseeing and supporting Symach activities across the country. Boukouras will replace Mark Cunningham, to whom the company is grateful for his intensive activities in promoting the Symach brand.

John began his career in the automotive industry as an apprentice panel beater, in Malvern, Victoria and was thrilled with his appointment.

“It was a year or two into my term that I felt I was good enough to continue with the career as a tradesman, the support of my parents helped a great deal and maintained the path I was on. I decided I was going to seek a higher role and perhaps a chance to become a foreman or manager of a workshop someday! The journey began and I was seeking an opportunity to work with an employer that would support my goals.”

“I have been fortunate enough to have the opportunity to grow and further develop my knowledge of the broad automotive sector. With the support of global coatings manufacturer AkzoNobel, I was able to spread my wings and grow as professional. Having exposure to the stakeholders across the complete value chain has given me greater insight and motivation to excel in this market, to be a part of it well into the future,” added Boukouras.

With Boukouras’ appointment, Symach guarantees its Australian customers the continuity of a strong relationship through its commercial structure in Australia, supporting Symach’s FixLine technology and process.

Commenting on the appointment, Osvaldo Bergaglio, Symach’s Owner and President said: “With John’s appointment we expect to further enhance the expansion of FixLine equipment and process to even more workshops across Australia. His strong leadership and his exceptional customer engagement capabilities will help reinforce the industrial concept of the collision repair business that Symach has long promoted worldwide.”
