Kuhn Rikon USA has hired Chris Robason as its new managing director, responsible for managing and developing the company’s business in the Americas and Canada.

Swiss brand Kuhn Rikon offers cookware and cooks’ tools, covering the cutlery, kitchen tools, bakeware, pressure cookers and specialty cookware categories.

“This is a tremendous opportunity,” said Robason. “Kuhn Rikon has a fantastic Swiss heritage combined with a very dynamic team in North America, and we are fortunate to have award-winning designers who continue to deliver unique and innovative products.  Kuhn Rikon recently brought Tobias Gerfin on board as global CEO, and he has already extended his support and experience to help us continue our growth and success in North America. There really are big things ahead of us.”

Robason brings 17 years of experience in sales and manufacturing management to Kuhn Rikon, most recently as regional sales manager with Range Kleen/Berndes Cookware, and prior to that, as national sales manager with Regal Ware, Inc., and regional sales manager with Meyer Corporation.
