Pickerings Lifts has appointed a new managing director and service director following the company’s boss’s retirement.
Paul Brooks (pictured) succeeded former managing director Ian Bowers yesterday after Bowers retired at the end of last month.
Brooks joined the company in 2014, initially joining as head of divisional operations before being promoted to service director in 2018.
In his new role Brooks will be responsible for the strategy, growth and direction of Pickerings Lifts, as well as taking responsibility for key customer accounts.
Following Bowers’ retirement, there have been further changes within the company’s executive board, with former service sales and marketing director Gary Rains promoted to service director.
Brooks said: “I am thrilled to have been given the opportunity to guide the company through the next chapter of its journey.
“The company has gone from strength-to-strength under Ian’s leadership and it has been an honour and a privilege to work alongside him over the past few years.”
