Previously, Ian spent 10 years at Speedy Hire Plc, the UK's leading tools, equipment and plant hire services company, latterly as Group Financial Controller in the UK, from 2010 to 2015. Ian will join the Company directly upon release from his current employment which will not be later than 3 January 2017.

"We are delighted that Ian will be joining Renold. He brings with him a wealth of relevant experience which will stand us in good stead as we continue to implement our Step 2020 strategy.

"We'd like to reiterate our thanks to Brian for his substantial contribution to Renold, improving business performance, rationalising operations, de-risking the pension fund and improving cash and treasury management. We wish him and his family all the very best for the future."
