C&G Services appoints new managing director

Jon Powney has been appointed managing director of Gloucestershire industrial training provider C&G Services (Europe) Ltd.

Mr Powney has been with the company for eight years with much of it on the board of directors, most recently as technical director.

Group chairman and owner Bob Oldmeadow said: "During this strange year with enforced lockdown for many, we have had to look at how the business is structured and the staff supported.

"As any organisation requires an active and present chief executive officer, we have asked Jon Powney to take over the role as managing director.

"We believe Jon understands the ethos we have as employers and the need for a good relationship with staff while having a natural accord with responsibility."

Mr Powney said he was delighted to accept the role.

He said: "I look forward to leading the company in these challenging times and will continue, with the support of the shareholders and my colleagues, to drive the company forward.

"With training contracts recently signed and new clients on the horizon the future looks to be brightening - exciting and busy times ahead."

C&G Services began training drivers in 1970, branding out to health and safety, street works and materials handling and have become industry leaders in crane and construction training.
