Addison Saws would like to introduce their new, permanent MD, Chris Wilson – former UK Sales Director, who will be taking over from previous MD, Gary Knight. Helping Chris run the sales department as new UK sales Manager will be Darren Creasey, who some of you may know as the Area Manager for the South East.
Gary drove the company forward in his role for 16 years and now is handing over the reins to his second-in-command for good after his short but successful period as Acting MD during the COVID crisis.
This shift comes at a crucial time for all businesses within manufacturing and having spent 15 years within Addison at Gary’s side, Chris is fully equipped with the knowledge and skills needed to continue pushing the company forward, and has more than proved his capabilities in leading the business over the years by building solid relationships with both customers and suppliers.
Darren Creasey has been with Addisons for 9 years in a client facing sales role, focusing on the South East of the UK. While he won’t be giving up that role entirely, Darren will be assisting Chris in managing the day-to-day running of the sales department. so, if you are one of Darren’s customers, he’ll still be available and more than happy to see your enquiry through.
We hope you will all join us in congratulating Chris and Darren on these well-earned achievements and wish them luck in their new roles.
