Former Nationwide Platforms managing director Jeremy Fish has been appointed as the new CEO of Ardent Hire, replacing Steve Corcoran who stepped down earlier this year.
The news comes just a day after Nationwide Platforms – part of Lavendon Group – announced that Mr Fish had resigned.
Ardent is a new rental company in the UK that was formed by the merger of One Call Hire and Fork Rent – a deal that was struck with private equity backing in August 2015.
Ardent said Mr Fish has over 20 years' experience in international and domestic markets, is a proven business developer and an accomplished operations manager.
“He has built his experience mainly with four companies, GEC, Misys, Aggreko and Lavendon. This knowledge and experience will be a great addition to the board and we look forward to him leading the business to achieving our goals,” the company added.
