Aurelien - Managing Director of FM Distribution
" People often ask me questions like - How long have I been in Australia? How did I start FM Distribution? What's my background?
Well, I have been in Australia since 2008. Prior to this I lived and worked in Shanghai for 4 years where I was helping European businesses to purchase products from Asia.
Since finishing business college in France, where I’m originally coming from, I have always been entrepreneurial with a strong interest in new technologies and the medical industry.
I started FM Distribution by coincidence really. I browsed for different products online that I could import from France and distribute in Australia.
One day, I found this young and innovative company called E-Swin, who was manufacturing IPL hair removal devices for home use - the first of its kind (at that time).
In 2012, FM Distribution started to distribute the full range of professional IPL devices from E-Swin to skin clinics followed a year and half later to optometrists and ophthalmologists.
Then came new great brands from fantastic people in France, Italy, Danemark, USA... such as LPG, CSO, 3Shape, Vision Vision and so on.
All the brands FM Distribution took on board have been selected for their uniqueness, brand image, product design and history.
I feel FM Distribution likes to do things differently compared to other businesses.
I like to think we bring new, fresh ideas and have a different way to approach the market and market our products.
I am always ready for new adventures, either for business or for exploring the world on a motorbike! "
Guillaume - National Sales Manager & Director FM Australia
" With a strong background in health care logistics as a B2B Sales Executive for 6 years with TNT Express, I am very much aware of the medical sector particularities and the high level of attention expected by end consumers in the health care field.
My latest combined responsibilities as Customer Service Manager and Sales Manager for one of France’s largest medical laboratories have given me the broad experience to participate in FM Distribution strategic development.
The importance given to customer satisfaction and the exceptional quality of the products represented by FM Distribution are important to me. Our focus on innovation gives me the desire to keep expanding our presence in Australia and New Zealand.
My background in the field of innovative medical products and my personal aim to always provide excellence in customer service make me feel “at home” at FM Distribution. ”

I am always available to answer questions about our products and to make sure our clients can run their businesses effectively.

Jeremy - Key Account Manager & QLD / NT Senior Account Manager
" Australian since 2013, you will find that I often get betrayed by a slight French accent!
As the Key Account Manager & QLD Manager for FM Distribution, my mission is to drive national projects and deliver success to large corporations.
I believe that enthusiasm and positivity are contagious, so it must be shared.
Coming from an agricultural background in France, I am a passionate person who knows how to be « hands on » and to not moke around when it comes to adding value to your buisiness.
QLD is home now and I love it. Give me an excuse to go to the country and you will see me supporting the Maroons at the pub with you after signing a partnership together.
I do what I love everyday, and I love what I do, so I cannot really say I am working. "
