Expo Technologies, announces, with regret, that Managing Director Peter MacAulay chose to step down with effect from July 31st to pursue his other interests. Expo is however delighted that current Technical Director John Paul de Beer replaces Peter as managing director. In addition, Martha Carrillo joins the board as director of business systems, and Matthew Dudones, VP of Sales, becomes director for the Americas.
After 25 years as managing director, Peter announced his decision at Expo’s scheduled January 2014 board meeting. In 1989, when Peter became Telektron's managing director, revenue was around £1 million. By 1998 the group was sufficiently strong to acquire and merge with Expo Safety Systems. Peter led Expo’s CLAPs system development, guided the North American growth, and opened markets across Europe and Asia. Since the merger the group achieved 15 years of unbroken growth, and revenue has tripled to £10 million.
Peter MacAulay adds “After 25 years, I am proud that Expo is financially strong, respected worldwide, and growing. This was achieved by developing excellent people from within the business. We’ve implemented a strong succession plan, so I leave the business in able hands.“
