StaffCo Direct makes number of senior appointments
StaffCo Direct Ltd, has appointed Lee French, previously StaffCo’s national sales director as managing director. Prior to joining the group in 2015, French was the regional sales director for First Personnel.
The group has also welcomed a new group finance director, Andy Moss, who was the former UK CFO at Randstad Staffing and Select Appointments. Moss started his career in recruitment nearly 20 years ago and will oversee the group’s finance, investment portfolio and acquisition briefs.
Further promotions have included Ashley Burton, who has recently been promoted from regional sales director to group sales director, and Laura Ansell has been promoted from head of service delivery to regional manager for the Milton Keynes and surrounding areas. Both have less than three years’ service with StaffCo and are a testament to the group’s policy of advancing its employees based solely on talent and opportunity, rather than time spent in post and rigid hierarchal systems.
Last year, StaffCo saw sales up by 44% and 2019 forecasts a further doubling of national sales. This ambition comes from plans to open new offices throughout the country, especially in London, Manchester, Warrington, Southampton and Basingstoke, further securing the nationwide footprint of this front running driver recruitment business.
Ian Murray, group CEO, stated, “Our new senior management team will play a vital role in ensuring we meet our ambitious growth objectives, as well as driving further improvements in operational efficiency.
“Our next big people-investment will be the new role of operations director who will lead the operational delivery whilst linking in with National Sales and supporting all our staff to develop their careers with StaffCo.”
