Leading hirer of portable site accommodation and secure storage containers, Mobile Mini, has bolstered its senior team with the appointment of a new finance director.
Steve Dickinson joined the firm in August having previously served as Head of Europe Finance Shared Services for Wood PLC (formerly Amec). He has also held a number of senior roles, both operational and financial, with a major commercial vehicle rental company. He said: “My time with the company so far has given me a great understanding of the team and what they are doing well.
“I’m now looking forward to developing a strategic plan for the finance operation, capturing key priorities and timelines based around all elements of the business – particularly focusing on our customers.”
The new finance director will support his fellow executive team members as well as the company’s Stockton-based Head Office and sales and branch staff across its network of 15 branches.
Speaking about the appointment, Managing Director Chris Morgan said: “We’re currently experiencing a period of strong growth at Mobile Mini and we’re doing all we can to invest in our branches, team and industry-leading fleet, whilst striving to maintain our reputation for exceeding our customers’ expectations.
“Steve brings with him a wealth of highly relevant financial and operational experience. His appointment is part of a wider strategy to ensure we have a strong, knowledgeable and efficient team to facilitate our continued growth.”
Mobile Mini has invested almost £3.5m in its branch network in the past 12 months following a surge in demand for its products, as well as upgrading its industry-leading fleet of lorry-mounted vehicles with an additional £1.5m investment.
