Changes of leadership announced at Brandon Hire

UK-based rental company Brandon Hire Station, a subsidiary of Vp plc, has announced changes to its senior leadership team.

Former PSS managing director Mark Hamilton (pictured), who joined the company in July 2023, has taken the role of managing director, effective from last September. 

In 30 years in the rental industry as both a plant and fleet expert with Tier 1 contractors and as a rental supplier, he has held senior roles at Balfour Beatty, M Group Services Plant & Fleet Solutions and Fusion Provida. 

In his new role, he will focus on customer satisfaction and “adding value, ensuring the business is even easier to trade with, increasing efficiencies and building further on its historic brand and market presence,” the company said. 

He will also work on environmental responsibility and introducing more sustainable products to the Brandon Hire fleet. 

Meanwhile, Jon Mugridge has been promoted to director of operations. Mugridge joined the company in February 2022 and has previously served as regional director.

Steve Davies has been appointed director of sales. He joins the company after two years with SIG Distribution, where he was the divisional sales director.

Antony Draper joins as the SHEQ director (Safety, Health, Environment and Quality). while Rich Reed joins Brandon Hire Station as director of finance.

Mark Hamilton, managing director, said, “This new senior leadership team has been tasked with keeping Brandon Hire Station at the top of the industry sector by introducing innovative products and services as well as providing digital tools, all aimed at helping us deliver an exceptional, added-value experience to our customers.”
