With ambitious business development plans for 2014, UK ship supplier Hutton’s has invested in new core management positions to take its growing business forward.
The Hutton’s Group has appointed a new Commercial Manager, Business Development Manager and Warehouse & Transport Manager to enhance its already successful enterprise which last year recorded a group turnover of £14million.
Joining Hutton’s as Commercial Manager is Shaun Casey who brings more than 25 years’ experience to the role and comes to us from RMS Trent Ports where he was Operations Manager. Responsible for developing the Customer Service and Operations departments, Shaun will focus on ensuring all Hutton’s customers experience 100% service and aims to streamline the operational path from customer enquiry to delivery.
Colin Greetham joins as Business Development Manager and, declaring himself to be “one hundred per cent committed to customers,” specialises in increasing sales and new business. His previous roles have included Sales Manager for Marine Safety Equipment and Industrial products. Colin will be responsible for identifying and targeting new business opportunities within the Hutton’s core UK chandlery division.
Hutton’s huge stockholding and logistics facility is the heart of the business and is now in the hands of highly experienced logistics expert Dominic Smith who joins as Warehouse & Transport Manager. Dominic, who previously worked for international logistics providers including DHL, will bring his wealth of experience in just-in-time logistics to Hutton’s and will focus particularly on enhancing the functionality of Hutton’s vast stockholding and logistics services, ensuring orders are right first time, every time.
Hutton’s Managing Director Alex Taylor said: “I am delighted to be able to welcome these three experienced professionals to Hutton’s. Their appointments form part of Hutton’s exciting development plans and will assist us in strengthening our business. We are determined to ensure our existing customer receive the highest level of service while, as part of an ambitious global expansion strategy we will also be targeting new business opportunities within the UK and overseas. We are investing significantly to grow our Offshore Renewable, Medical and Global Divisions along with enhancing our core UK Chandlery business to ensure that Hutton’s remains the market leader.”
