Along with running the agency Kimberly will also work with Cook to manage the integration of TMK with Paykel.

“It is terrific to return to Melbourne and join Paykel. From what I’ve seen, the agency is now ready to expand its presence in this market and my aim is to assist in its growth over the next phase of its development.”
