Lifting specialist Certex UK has made several changes to the company's management department.
From 1 January 2014 operations director Kevin Smith will be appointed to managing director. Smith will take over from Tony Stringer who is to become group projects director.
Kevin Smith said, “We are now in a profitable situation and can be clear about where to focus our resources. With this in mind, I am restructuring the business to ensure that we have the right people in the right position to meet the challenges that lie ahead. It will mean a more concentrated management structure with myself and finance director, Adrian Tomkinson, as the company’s only two directors supported by a smaller, proactive senior management board.”
Tony Stringer said, “I have no doubt that Certex UK will be in very capable hands under Kevin’s leadership and I wish him all the very best in his new role as managing director. In my new capacity as group projects director we will continue to work together and I look forward to involving Kevin and his team in joint ventures to improve customer service across Scandinavia, Europe and further afield.”
