Prior to the appointment Rafferty was contracts director and has worked with the Gilmerton, Edinburgh company since 2003. He succeeds his father Jim Rafferty who has become chairman of both the crane company and Bernard Hunter metal recycling and property development. While he will be taking more of a back seat' in terms of the day to day business he will still be involved with the major decisions affecting the crane business.
A statement from the company said: The management restructuring will ensure a 'business as usual' approach for the firm with Mark Rafferty steering day to day operations, whilst Jim Rafferty will take more of a back seat but continue his involvement with major decision making for Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes, in addition to his involvement with metal recycling and property development for Bernard Hunter. The former connection with metals stretches back to the companys founding in 1946 at Seafield, Edinburgh.
Bernard Hunter Mobile Cranes runs a fleet of 18 mobile cranes, with capacities up to 500 tonnes and also includes three mobile tower cranes.
