Goole-based O&H Vehicle Technology has appointed a Head of Operations in a newly-created position to drive efficiency, strategy and culture ahead of a period of imminent growth.
Mark Gresty joins O&H at a pivotal point in its 30-year history. Synonymous with the UK’s emergency services vehicle sector, the manufacturer has recently undergone a transformative three months – internally referred to as ‘O&H 2.0’ – whereby its new MD, Oliver North, has rebranded the company and created a positive culture-shift.
With 35 years’ experience as an army major and with leadership experience across multiple disciplines, including personnel, logistics and operations, Mr Gresty is set to continue implementing military precision within the organisation’s shop floor, and to help lead its 150-strong team – alongside its experienced management team.
Mr North said:“With the commencement of our ‘O&H 2.0’ project, we required an experienced change manager with a particular competence for making our experienced teams work more seamlessly together. Mark’s skillset will allow us to absorb said changes whilst increasing performance, without disruption.”
Mr Gresty added: “My immediate concern is to drive operational efficiency and culture amongst the highly skilled team at O&H Vehicle Technology’s impressive headquarters.”
