We’re pleased to welcome Mike Wallace to the team as our new Commercial Operations Manager. Joining us from Cheshire Seals and Components, Mike has a long history of performance management and warehouse operations and plenty of invaluable experience in stock movement, quality control and client support. In this diverse and varied role he will oversee many facets of the operational side of Rennicks UK systems, amongst other aspects of the business such as sales and marketing processes and product performance review.
A new challenge on the horizon
Looking for a new challenge, Mike found Rennicks to be the perfect next step in his career. In particular, he was attracted by our ethics and ethos, as he explains:
“What stood out about Rennicks was the passion everyone has for the business and its products. I also felt strongly about the core values. I’m more and more aware, especially after having kids, how important our impact on the environment is. Working at a company that takes this seriously and puts it at the heart of everything it does was a big selling point for me.”
We were equally as impressed with Mike’s CV to date – which includes over a decade as Commercial Manager at a large North West firm and seven years in management at a large supermarket chain. Enthusiastic, adaptable and committed, Mike’s values and passion for delivering excellence in all areas mirror our own, making him the perfect addition to the Rennicks team.
Speaking of Mike’s appointment Sales Director Robert Tait says: “We’re delighted to welcome Mike to Rennicks UK – his diverse skillset and extensive experience in many different areas of operations, product management and logistics makes him a real asset to the team and we’re thrilled to have him on board.”
A diverse and exciting role
In his role with us Mike will also be responsible for team motivation, performance management, and the co-ordination and development of new product and marketing ventures, as well as ensuring our warehousing and logistics run like clockwork. As the Rennicks product range continues to expand, diversify and develop, having strong leadership at the helm of our Operations wing will be essential to ensure continued smooth running and growth of the business.
Speaking about the opportunities this new role will bring, Mike explains, “Now I’m here I can’t wait to get stuck in and make a difference. The team have all been very welcoming and supportive and I’m really looking forward to working with them all and building relationships.”
We’re sure you’ll join us in warmly welcoming Mike to the team.
