UK rental company AFI has appointed Matt Scott and Chris Jowett as directors as part of an ongoing expansion of the business.
Scott joined AFI a year ago as marketing manager and now moves up to group marketing director. He has worked in marketing for over 15 years with brands such as Yale, Komatsu, British Gypsum and Balfour Beatty.
Jowett joined the company seven years ago as financial controller. His new title is group IT director having previously being IT manager.
AFI chairman David Shipman said: “We are delighted to welcome Matt and Chris to the board during this exciting period of AFI’s development. Following on from the appointments of Pete Wajner and Steve Williams last year, their appointments reflect the opportunities that continue to arise for all members of our team as our business successfully grows.”
During 2013 AFI posted a 50 percent growth in its business, following an £85 million refinancing that led to the simultaneous acquisitions of Hi-Reach and Wilson Access Hire in the UK and Access Rental Gulf in the Middle East.
