By Emily Peagram 25 Jun 2020

Thorsten Streppelhoff, Chief Operating Officer, and René Freyer Director HR of the edding Group has very recently released the following statement regarding the UK Managing Director’s position at edding UK:

“Today we announce that edding UK Managing Director Barry Hall will retire at the end of June 2020.

In his 20 years at the helm Barry achieved significant success managing, steering and implementing strategies that delivered sustainable growth and development for the UK business. He goes into his retirement with our deep gratitude and sincere thanks.

Barry informed of his decision to retire last year, affording us plenty of time to formulate a succession plan.

Therefore we are delighted to announce that Andy Gutteridge (Director of Strategy and Marketing) is deservedly promoted and will take over as UK Managing Director on 1st July. Andy has worked closely with Barry for a number of years, he has a deep knowledge of our local company and the industry in general.

Finally, completing the new edding UK management structure, Robert Turner (Finance Manager) is promoted to Finance Director and we welcome onboard Nick Prazsky (formally of 3M) in the newly created position of Sales Director.

We are confident Andy and his new team are best placed to lead the company forward – especially in these challenging times.”
