I am looking forward to transition my role into supporting our other sister companies in Europe as my role changes in our organisation.

“The transition so far has gone as well as we had hoped, and I am delighted that our team can continue to call upon Richard’s wealth of experience whenever it is needed.

“It’s a time of celebration and reflection of how far we have come since the organisation was founded way back in 2001 and also a chance to look forward to what the next 20+ years has instore. We have some great foundations to build on and I am pleased to say we are in a great position moving forward. With a young and dynamic leadership team in place we will further enhance all aspects of our customer’s journey and continue to make Altus the trusted partner of UK electronics manufacturing industry.”

Richard concluded: “Looking back at the company journey so far, I couldn’t have asked for more really. We have been blessed with great customers throughout, and a growing list of late, as more manufacturers buy into our focus on support.

“We have also been very fortunate with our partners supplying us with innovative technology to make our lives and sales efforts much easier as they move from unknown brands to dominant global positions. I would like to give credit to the exceptional team we have created at Altus Group. Our team of highly dedicated engineers have been the backbone of our offering, and together with the new management team the company can be taken to new heights. We are looking forward to a very bright future at Altus Group.”
