– sets sights on North America
A Finnish design brand Magisso is pleased to name ex-Iittala, Inc. President Sue Pregartner as COO for Magisso North America, Inc. as it sets sights on North American market.
“We are excited! Sue is a perfect addition to our Magisso team. She is smart and energetic” says Juhani Sirén, CEO and founder of Magisso.
“Her excessive knowledge on product-driven business, hands-on mentality and passion for Finnish design fit perfectly on the core values of Magisso and will help us reach our goals in North America.”
Multi-awarded Magisso brand was established in 2008 and since then it has created problem-solving kitchen gear that are unique in terms of function, design and user-friendliness as ideas grow from an actual need, not from the marketing department. As Finns in general, Magisso products are simple but smart.
“I joined Magisso because of the team first, the products second. The team is fast paced, energetic, savvy and they clearly enjoy what they do. As for the products, they have the right balance of smart design and fun. Magisso’s time is now” tells Sue Pregartner.
Starting from October 1, COO Sue Pregartner will be in charge of Magisso operations in the US and Canada.
