Pickfords names Mark Taylor as new Managing Director of its operating company Pickfords Move Management Ltd
Mark Taylor has been named as the new Managing Director of Pickfords Move Management Ltd, the operating company of leading UK removals firm Pickfords, headquartered in Kings Langley, Hertfordshire, and whose roots stretch back to the middle of the seventeenth century.
As Managing Director, Mark will take on the mantle of driving business performance and quality across all of the divisions of the company, which covers every single postcode across the UK and Ireland.
Mark has been an employee of Pickfords for more than three decades in a number of different strategic roles, including those of regional director and network director, and so he has extensive knowledge of the UK removals and storage industry, in which the firm is such a key player.
In 2014, he was given the role of main board Director with overall responsibility for the company’s home removals business UK-wide.
More recently, in 2017, he led an award-winning apprenticeship programme at Pickfords, leading to the company’s making of the Centrica Top 100 Employers List.
While doing this, he championed Investors in People and focused firmly on staff development. His recent focus on quality initiatives has led to consistent five-star feedback reviews from customers on the Trustpilot review site.
Yogesh Mehta, who is Chairman of Pickfords Move Management Ltd, commented: “Mark’s track record with the company is outstanding – indeed, he has an excellent reputation across the whole of the removals and storage industry. So we were delighted to announce this appointment.
“To this latest role, Mark brings with an extremely high level of knowledge and expertise which I don’t doubt will be invaluable as together we drive the business forward. And, following a £1m+ investment at our NW10 facility, the site has been used more effectively than ever, so it’s a great time to be at the helm of Pickfords.
“We plan future capital investment in technology, fleet and staff, underpinning the growth of the business in the years ahead. I wish Mark great success in this challenging but exciting new position.”
Meanwhile, Mark himself added: “I am thrilled to have been given the chance to take the company into the next stage of its long history. I believe this to be a hugely exciting time for our brand, and I’m convinced we can carry on building on the successes of this year so that we continue to grow consistently in the future.”
The removal company has branches throughout the UK and Ireland , and its full portfolio of services to domestic customers and businesses includes moving within the United Kingdom, in Europe or further afield. The firm also offers business and employee moving services and associated project management and provides packing materials.
