He joined the company in 2006 as group finance director, becoming group chief operating officer in 2012.

He was also involved with subsequent buyout in 2006. See Barclays Private Equity buys into AFI
AFI has grown steadily over the years, both organically and via acquisitions and now runs a fleet of more than 7,000 machines in the UK and Middle East., mostly aerial work platforms, with revenues approaching £100 million, a 20 percent increase on 2016.

We will continue our strategy of growth through both organic growth and acquisitions and I look forward to another strong year ahead.”
