Team changes for UNTHA UK as firm eyes £15m turnover

Industrial shredder specialist UNTHA UK has revealed several team changes and plans for the year, as MD Marcus Brew gears up to record £15 million turnover by the end of 2021.

The promotions, hires and product launches follow a landmark year for the business, which reached £10.5 million revenues despite the economic backdrop.

Communications professional Katie Mallinson – a long-standing supplier – has been appointed as Marketing Director, to build on the firm’s brand voice in both the UK and overseas.

Founder of her own PR and copywriting firm, her contribution to the board will support the strategic development of UNTHA UK’s external and internal dialogue across a range of communication channels.

Elsewhere, Andy Nadin – a colleague since 2012 – has moved into the position of aftersales manager, to reflect growing market demand for spare and wear parts, service and maintenance contracts, and used shredder refurbishments.

Rob Andrews will then head up the engineering services team, while Ben Styles will become the division’s senior engineer.

Sharon Annat will lead on BI, MI and data analysis; Sarah Murray has transitioned into a sales coordinator role to streamline the mounting flow of enquiries coming into the business, and sales director Gary Moore is looking for another experienced sales professional to join his busy commercial team.

An experienced engineer and an electrical apprentice have already been onboarded, and a vacancy for a HR and administrative coordinator has also been created.

The redefined organisational structure showcases that UNTHA UK’s success is as much about the team, as it is its technology, says Mr Brew.

“In a crowded market, suppliers have to add value,” he said. “We do this by developing deep relationships with our customers, to not only support them long after the sale, but to ensure they maximise the environmental and commercial gain that we can leverage with our shredders.

“People are core to this, and employees’ resilience during a difficult year was nothing short of remarkable. We’re lucky to have a blend of long-serving colleagues and fresh talent, within our team, and this sharper structure is about using our skills to best effect, while paving the way for new roles.”
