Jonathan Marsden said: "Ben is a prestigious appointment for us to deliver our ambitious Vision 2022 growth plan, which we unveiled last year. We aim to grow from £4m turnover, 30 staff and 450 customers to £15m turnover, 65 staff and 2,000 customers by 2022. Organic growth and acquisitions are fundamental to that growth, and I'm pleased to say we're on track to complete two acquisitions this year."
Ben Mitton added: "This is a very exciting time to be joining a dynamic, ambitious and fast-growing business. There is a strong leadership team in place, and I'm looking forward to working alongside that team and with external stakeholders to help drive the next phase of growth.
"I'm also looking forward to being back in my home county. Having grown up in Harrogate I've always had an affinity for Yorkshire, and it's moving forward at a pace. It's great to be working somewhere that has so much going on."
