Huw said “This change is key to us implementing our strategic plans and continuing the high growth experienced in recent years by further investing in the business. This is an exciting period of development for the business and I’m looking forward with anticipation for our future prospects and improving the experience for our customers. I’m excited about the new challenge ahead of me and delighted that Martin is taking over as MD”

The incoming MD, Martin, said: “I’m delighted to take up this new role and hope to continue the excellent performance of the last few years. We have key strategic plans in place to grow further and investment opportunities to support, and I’m excited to see them come to fruition for the benefit of our customers and community”
