Jones departs ‘Synseal’ group
20th August 2019
Aperture Group, the body created for the acquisition of Synseal from administration has announced that sales & marketing director Andy Jones is ‘bidding farewell’ to the company at the end of next month to take up a group MD role with an unnamed group elsewhere in the industry.
Andy, who retained the sales & marketing role after the rescue read story said he needed to relieve the demand on his family made by four years of commuting to and from Synseal’s Huthwaite base, combined with the opportunity offered by the new MD role.
Aperture CEO Matthew Mycock said: “Andy has been part of the team that has set the groundwork for major transformation within the business and has helped us to be able to embark on the next stage of Aperture’s journey from a position of strength. I wish Andy all the best in his new position.”
Andy continued in the statement: “Aperture has made great strides in the last few months and I announce my departure at a time when the company has already beaten its initial budget projections. I’m really proud of what we’ve achieved as a team and with so many new product launches on the table, deciding to leave has genuinely been a tough decision. However, after approaching almost 4 years of a daily motorway commute to and from Huthwaite, I need to relieve the commuting demands on my ever-patient and understanding family. This combined with the Group MD opportunity, means now is the right time for a change in direction and new challenges.
“To echo Matthew’s statement, Aperture is now a ‘fit for purpose’ business and under his leadership with the strong management team now in place, is well on its way to becoming a robust, sustainable, successful business with customers at its heart.”
