CHH Undergoes Major Transformation One Year After Acquisition
Midlands business CHH has completed a strategic realignment of its leadership team to help exploit new market opportunities. One year on from its acquisition by Paul Turner and Cory McFarlane, the business has promoted key personnel as Managing Directors of its two distinct divisions. It has also appointed new Finance and Commercial Directors to help deliver its long-term strategy.
CHH has undergone a major transformation since its acquisition in March 2022. Its new owners have helped the company fulfill its potential by focusing investment and resources on high-growth areas. The leadership team has realigned the business to ensure it is best placed to exploit new revenue streams and gain competitive advantage.
After working for the business for more than 14 years, Liz Scott has been appointed Managing Director of CHH’s Design, Engineering & Manufacturing division. Her department has seen significant growth on the back of the design and production of rack and cabinet solutions to support the UK’s digital infrastructure upgrade. Liz will now help build on its capabilities and secure more work in key vertical markets.
Meanwhile, Laura Leese has been appointed Managing Director of CHH Managed Services. Building on her long-standing role as General Manager, Laura is tasked with capitalising on major market opportunities to provide a comprehensive service offering. The key business unit has already played a major part in the first phase of the UK’s smart metre rollout, providing consumables and PPE to field service engineers. The team has continued to grow on the back of increased demand and Laura will help build on that success.
CHH has also appointed Chris Wilde as Finance Director on the back of his impressive work in providing valuable financial and performance data. He will lead the accounting function for both divisions and play an important role in the company’s corporate governance as well as meeting its business goals.
As part of the effort to ensure both divisions are equipped for growth, CHH has also appointed a Commercial Director. Heather Turner will apply her engineering, sales and marketing experience to boost performance. Having worked for the likes of Bosch, Ingersoll Rand and MacLean Fogg, she is a valuable addition to the team.
Looking ahead, the priority for CHH is to maintain momentum and increase its market share. It has hired a Business Strategy consultant to help formulate growth plans and is about to launch a new website to coincide with the anniversary of the acquisition.
CHH CEO Paul Turner commented: “The whole team has worked hard on putting the right structure in place to support growth, and already we’ve achieved so much in the last year. We’re very excited about the opportunities ahead which include opening up international markets and having such a strong and capable team in place will help meet our long-term goals. Cory and I will now focus our attention on helping both divisions deliver sustainable growth whilst remaining agile in a rapidly changing market.”
