A company that specialises in the provision of storage facilities from temporary cabins to portable toilets has appointed a new UK managing director.

Elliotts, which employs 100 people at its head office in Manor Drive, in Peterborough has named Lee John Newman to lead its UK operations.

He will take over from Bertrand Quenot.

Mr Newman said: “It is an exciting time for me to join Elliott and I am delighted to have taken this position.

“The Elliott team are so enthusiastic - it is great to share their passion within this exciting industry.

“We already have a very strong market position for providing portable accommodation in our target markets.

“I will be building on the foundations laid down by Bertrand Quenot in developing a series of projects aimed at growing our business even further.

“With our 360° Service offerings we have already taken giant steps in moving Elliott from being the UK’s leading supplier of modular space to one that provides a whole host of accessories and packages that enable our customers to source from a single solution supplier.”

Mr Newman joins Elliott from Wolseley Group where he was managing director of the commercial and industrial division.
