A BOARDROOM RESHUFFLE at Mills CNC has seen finance director Paul Hooper-Keeley named managing director.
His appointment is part of a wider management restructure and succession planning at the Doosan machine tools distributor. Hooper-Keeley (pictured) is joined on a new operational management board by senior managers – Nick White, Kevin Gilbert and Tony Dale, who have been appointed sales director, operations director and technical director, respectively. Adam Attwood continues as non-exec chairman – a role he has occupied at Mills for the last six years
Previous MD Nick Frampton and Andrew Jack, former technical director, will retain a shareholding stake in the company and remain as consultants during a transitional period.
Management of the finance function will remain under Hooper-Keeley’s remit, with a new senior long term loan recently agreed with lenders. Other members of finance will take on additional responsiblity.
Hooper-Keeley said: “These are exciting times for Mills’ employees and our customers. The impressive growth we have experienced over recent years, and the ambitious plans we have for the future, have necessitated a strategic change in the way we organise ourselves and run the business.
“The composition of the new operational board of directors does this – and more accurately reflects the importance and inter-relationship between machine tool sales, customer service and technical support.”
