Rupert Fordham, Chairman of Morgan Hunt Group, said:
These hires represent a very significant influx of talent into Morgan Hunt. Over the last few years, we have built up the Groups turnover to 90m, and positioned ourselves as market leaders in a number of sectors. We have now strengthened and broadened our senior management team to enable us to take the business to the next level in the coming years. We continue to see terrific opportunities in the UK public sector market, and believe that the current downturn offers opportunities to establish a presence in some private sector areas as well. We also believe that despite the downturn, our businesses in Russia and the UAE offer outstanding growth potential over the next few years.
