Managing director Gary Hall has become the sole owner of Yorkshire-based gas detection and monitoring specialist TQ Environmental, having acquired the business outright following months of negotiation.
In a further key change for the company, sales manager Gary Stanley is promoted to business development director.
Gary Hall joined TQ in 2008 as a sales engineer, becoming sales director in 2011 and managing director in 2016. He said: “Since starting with the company 14 years ago, I have helped build the foundations and watched TQ go from strength to strength. In 2011 I was fortunate to get an opportunity to buy into the business and in 2016, following a restructure, I was made managing director and continued to see the company flourish. I now believe that we are in a very strong position to move forward.‘’
Gary Stanley moved to TQ in 2020 as sales manager, having previously worked at Fujitsu. He said: “I joined TQ at the height of the pandemic, which could have been risky for both the company and myself. However, it was obvious to me from the outset that TQ were performing well, and the opportunity to join was too great to pass up. Over the past two years I have seen plenty of changes and have always been made to feel an integral part of the business. I feel very privileged to be given the chance to become business development director and help drive this well-established company forward.’’
