Lavendon Group Finance Director – Changes and Appointment

Lavendon Group today announces the departure of Alan Merrell, Group Finance Director, who will leave the business at the end of June after 19 years at the helm. Alan is succeeded by Tom Murray who joined the UK business, Nationwide Platforms, in 2016 as Finance Director.

Alan has been instrumental in guiding the organisation through major changes and challenges across its operating territories and geographies and is well respected throughout the rental industry for his pragmatic approach and experience.

Don Kenny, Chief Executive Officer of Lavendn Group, commented: “Alan’s departure is most certainly the end of an era for Lavendon Group as he has been a cornerstone of our success story.  On a personal note, I would like to thank Alan for his valued partnership over the last few years and I know everyone at Lavendon wishes Alan the very best for the future.  He leaves Lavendon in very good hands as we enter a new and exciting chapter with Loxam Group.”  

Tom Murray will formally take up his new role on 1st July 2017 following a period of transition and handover between the two Directors.

Further announcements regarding the appointment of a UK Finance Director will be made in due course.
