Anthony Daniels has taken over from Martyn Garrod as managing director at Handtmann Ltd.

Daniels joined the company in 1997 as the first field service technician based remotely in the north of England. He then progressed from his appointment as area sales manager for the North West in 2008 to sales manager for the UK and Ireland in 2016. He started his new role as managing director on 1 October.

Garrod had worked at Handtmann Ltd since its inception in 1986 and had held the position of managing director since 2005.

He said: “This change represents a new phase in the history of Handtmann and I wish Anthony every success in his new position and the acceptance of his new responsibilities.”

Garrod will stay on in an advisory capacity until the end of the year.
