He added, “I would like to pay tribute to his predecessor Carl Bullock who has been the Managing Director since 2015 and led the company to the position it enjoys today. His dedication and hard work has positioned the business to be able to take the next stage of its development. Carl stood down from his role for personal reasons but will continue to support the business as a non-executive Director. I wish them both the best of luck in their new endeavours.”
