Matthew Main has stepped down as managing director of national mobility retailer, The Unlimited Company, after just two years and has been replaced by Raman Sankaran, chief commercial officer at Simplyhealth Group, which owns the dealership.
Main oversaw the rebranding of Simplyhealth’s retail arm, Independent Living, to become the Unlimited Company and helped to establish the brand in the marketplace as a major player.
Under Main, the company embarked on a spree of shop-openings, launching two stores since March and opening three in 2016 as it looked to achieve rapid expansion.
Sankaran has a deep knowledge of the mobility and independent living sector and strong relationships with healthcare professionals, the firm says. Simplyhealth Group believes he is well equipped with the support of The Unlimited Company, to lead the business into the next phase of its development and growth.
Sankaran explained that the retailer has ‘exciting growth plans’ and will continue to fulfil Simplyhealth’s purpose.
“Matt has contributed to this ambition over recent years at The Unlimited Company and they leave it as a much stronger business than the one they took on. I’d like to thank Matt for his leadership; it’s been an absolute pleasure to work with him and I wish him well for the future. I know he’ll be continuing to cheer the team on too,” Sankaran commented.
Meanwhile, Main said: “I leave The Unlimited Company feeling extremely proud about the team I’ve built and worked closely with and the great things we’ve achieved over the last two years. I see every day the life-changing difference we make to our customers. It continues to be an exciting time for The Unlimited Company and so I’ll be keeping a close ear to the ground as I know the best is still yet to come.”
