“Neil’s appointment comes at a very exciting time for the company as it embarks on an aggressive 5-year plan. This is the first time in 95 years a non-family member has held an executive position at CTL however, the board & shareholders all agreed it’s now time for change as we welcome Neil as COO. Over the coming months, I will be  handing over most of my day-to-day responsibilities to Neil, which will then allow me  more time to spend on the overall strategy.”

“I’m very excited and honoured to be joining such a dynamic, forward-thinking business. Charles Trent Ltd justifiably has an excellent reputation in the UK Salvage  & Recycling industry and has set out an ambitious few years ahead. There will be disruption and opportunities as the UK car parc changes in the drive towards vehicle electrification, and also as green parts usage really starts to take off. I am looking forward to working with the team and helping the company develop and achieve its plans and ambitions.”
