We are welcoming new faces to our board of directors.
Mechan stalwart, Martin Berry, has been promoted to engineering director, whilst Andrew Mott and Jean Gourp from our parent companies complete the line-up.
Martin has worked for Mechan for 15 years, overseeing the design and production of our lifting and handling equipment and brings a wealth of technical experience to the management team.
Qualified mechanical engineer, Andrew Mott, has been appointed as Mechan’s managing director. This will expand his current remit for parent company, CIM Group, which includes overseeing subsidiaries in Canada, Tanzania and Singapore, as well as commercial activities in English speaking African markets.
Jean Gourp is vice president of umbrella organisation, CMI Services and is based at its headquarters in Belgium. He will coordinate our activities with other group companies, helping us work together and utilise our collective expertise.
Alain Lovambac, chairman of the CIM Group, has overseen the restructuring. He said: “We believe these changes to Mechan’s board of directors gives the firm a stronger structure, whilst keeping management costs to a minimum. This strategy has worked well in other CIM subsidiaries, enabling profitability to be maximised.”
