Geoff Mills is the new Commercial Director of commercial refrigeration service and air conditioning specialist Epta UK.
He began his new job today and replaces industry stalwart John Austin-Davies, who will stay with the business in a role supporting central Epta activities. John, who plans to retire next year, will also stay on the board of directors of Epta George Barker and Epta Cold Service.
John served as Commercial Director for six years and has been with the business for around 30 years. He said: “Succession planning is critical to the future of any company and for Epta UK we have invested to ensure that my planned retirement in 2018 is completed smoothly with an experienced successor.
“Geoff Mills takes over the full commercial and marketing activities at the Epta UK business in Bradford and Ringwood. Geoff has considerable experience in the commercial refrigeration field, with technical and project experience gained working for a major UK supplier for many years.''
Geoff Mills was previously at Carter Synergy, where he was Contracts Director for almost a decade. Prior to that he was Managing Director at Carter Planned Maintenance. He was also Sales and Engineering Director and Sales and Engineering Manager at Carter Refrigeration & Retail Services and Project Manager at Carter Refrigeration Display.
Epta UK was created last month when George Barker and Cold Service joined together under the Epta group banner.
