Graeme Hill, managing director of CTE UK, will retire from the company at the end of this year, following eight years of service. Hill will be replaced by Craig Rooke, who has already joined CTE UK, and brings with him a wealth of experience in the access industry. He formally worked at Falcon Lifts and Teupen. 

Hill said, “Since coming into the access industry back in 1983, I have met so many interesting people and made some good friends and contacts. It will be sad to say goodbye to my CTE UK team who are a fabulous group of talented individuals, who I have worked very closely with. Whilst my departure will be difficult for me personally, I am looking forward to a change of pace. I wish everyone all the very best and welcome Craig to the team.”

Rook said that Hill had contributed greatly to CTE and the UK access industry as a whole. ”I am sure he will miss the industry hugely but he will also have a fantastic and fun retirement. I’m very humbled to be asked to take over Graeme’s role and I look forward to working closely with our parent company in Italy on developing new products and with the UK team that is extremely experienced and very highly regarded by customers which is testament to them and also to the leadership and guidance of Graeme.”

Marco Govoni, sales director for CTE SpA, added, “I just want to underline already that we can only be honoured to have had as the leadership of CTE UK a person like Graeme with a great sense of respect and loyalty toward the customer.”

I am sure that these attributes, in addition to the great sense of belonging to the CTE family, will be inherited by Craig to whom I wish a great future with us.”
