I have watched the UK’s positive development over recent years and am counting the day’s until I can take up the reigns and work with the teams, as we develop the next stage of our growth plans. I believe my experience, specifically in the areas of solution selling and business development will enhance an already successful, customer and growth focused approach.’

With Ross leading the UK team I believe and expect both Mayflex and our customer and vendors partners to seek out the growth opportunities these changes offer and grab them with both hands’

As a result of his consistent performance and strong service ethic, we see this as a natural development of his career at Mayflex, further underlining our strategy of staff development and succession planning. I would like to wish both Ross and Krishna the very best of luck in these new roles and assure them of my personal and the wider businesses support at all times.’
