Engel UK announces new management details.
By PRW Staff
Engel UK has announced two new managerial appointments to reflect the growth of the business in recent years.
Tony (Taff) Borthwick, former Engel UK service manager, has been appointed to take up the new position of technical director at Engel UK.
Borthwick worked at Engel UK from 1992 to 2008, when he left to join the parent company in Austria where he rose to become service manager in St Valentin.
The UK operation also revealed it had promoted Emma Hastie from financial controller to the position of finance director. Hastie joined Engel UK in 1999 as assistant management accountant, becoming financial controller in 2004.
Engel UK’s managing director Graeme Herlihy said: “We had the same management structure at Engel UK 10 years ago when the company had one quarter of our current sales.
“These two new directorships are definitely appropriate, given the size of business we are now.”
Herlihy said Borthwick’s appointment was “perfect” for Engel UK and its customers.
“Having spent those years in Austria, Taff speaks fluent German and knows all the systems and the people in our parent company.
“Sometimes when immediate support is needed it’s that kind of inside knowledge that can make all the difference.”
