UNTHA UK appoints new MD
North Yorkshire-based industrial shredding firm UNTHA UK has appointed a new managing director.
Marcus Brew takes the reins at the helm of the company, following a promotion from his previous role of sales director.
Chris Oldfield, who has led the shredding business since 1997, will become chairman, concentrating on UNTHA UK's over-arching strategic direction and other wider ambassadorial responsibilities in industry.
With a sales target of £10m for the new financial year, the promotion signifies the next stage in UNTHA UK's organic development.
Commenting on UNTHA UK's evolution, Brew said: "We have always been a very focused, customer-centric organisation that strives to supply not just the best equipment but the greatest levels of service and support too.
"We've made some key changes to our team this year to support our push for continuous improvement, and are currently undergoing a further recruitment drive to fuel the next part of our journey."
Oldfield said: "This is a very exciting time in the evolution of our business. I will still have an active role at UNTHA UK and look forward to analysing the company's position and efficiencies from a different perspective.
"Marcus' promotion will also enable me to support some of the wider industry initiatives, forums and committees that I've long been asked to get involved with. I'm eager to see how UNTHA UK will further progress over the next few years."
