The partners involved in KITCHEN HQ are Richard John Hart (Rick Hart), Nicholas Peter Kirby (Nick Kirby) and Spiros Scafidas.
Rick Hart has until recently been founder and Managing Director of the Rick Hart retail chain. After founding the business in 1975, he grew and operated the business until 2005, when the business merged with Clive Peeters Limited which was subsequently listed on the ASX. He was a Director of the publicly, listed Company until his resignation in November 2009. Rick Hart is regarded as one of Australia’s most prominent appliance retailers, who introduced kitchen and cooking products to traditional retail stores in the 80’s, and has maintained a high profile in that sector of the industry for more than 25 years, being clearly recognised as a leader in the retail market.
Nick Kirby was, from June 2003, General Manager for the Rick Hart operation in Western Australia, a position he occupied for some 6 years, following a career spanning more than 18 years in electrical appliance retailing both in Australia and South Africa, from where he emigrated in 1999.
Spiros Scafidas has a 23 year background in the appliance industry and up until 2006 was the CEO of Amalgamated Appliances (Pty)Ltd (JSE:Amaps) the largest distributor of domestic appliances in South Africa. For the past few years he has had his own consulting business focusing on the appliance industry.
There has long been the need for a specialist high end kitchen, cooking and laundry retailer in Western Australia and with Kitchen HQ this offer is now available for consumers to enjoy!
