Fluidra Commercial welcomes Yvette Audet as NSW/ACT Business Development Manager

Fluidra Commercial welcomes Yvette Audet as NSW/ACT Business Development Manager
February 23, 2023

Fluidra has announced that aquatic industry expert, Yvette Audet, has joined their Commercial team as NSW/ACT Business Development Manager.

Audet’s extensive background in the aquatic and recreation industry spans for almost three decades. Her experience in the industry along with her involvement in relevant governance positions, creates valuable insights into the current aquatic trends and how best to meet the customers needs and wants.

Along with her experience in the planning and programming for aquatic and recreation centres, and her strong customer focus, Audet is seen as a “good fit” for the company as they launch further into the APAC commercial market.

Announcing the appointment, Fluidra Commercial General Manager, Jeremy Smith stated “we are very excited to have Yvette join the Fluidra Commercial team. Her experience in the commercial aquatics space both from an operational background and an understanding of new projects from early stage feasibility to completion brings a new perspective to our existing team of industry specialists."

Audet’s position on the international aquatic circle and as Vice President of IAKS (International Association for Sport and Leisure Facilities) coupled with Fluidra’s presence in 45 countries is expected to enable the Fluidra Australia Commercial team to network globally, but still have a local focus.

Fluidra, which also manufactures innovative products locally, has Australian-made solutions for aquatic spaces and places that maximise the customer experience.

Looking forward to her new role, Audet (pictured) advised “I am glad to bring my knowledge and skills across to the Fluidra team, and I look forward to strengthening my relationships in the aquatic industry to help provide affordable and responsible solutions for the betterment of our local communities.”
