Electrical wholesaler appoints new MD

Electrical wholesaler ERF has appointed Andy Laycock as its new Managing Director to drive the company’s next phase of digitalisation and growth.

The scheduled transition is part of a two year plan, with Robin Combellack being appointed Chief Executive Officer.

In his new role of Chief Executive Officer, Robin Combellack will continue to play a crucial part in the business, despite handing over the day to day management of the company to Andy.

Robin commented: “We have built a committed and talented team headed by Andy Laycock which will drive through on our investment and achieve the targets they have set themselves.”

Andy has been with the Nottingham-based, family-owned company for 15 years, working as Sales Director. He said: “I am delighted and feel truly privileged to be given the opportunity to lead our business into the next phase of transformation.

“A new era, shaped by the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic is emerging, and it’s one in which we will drive growth and customer service levels forward through digitalisation, whilst at the same time continuing to embrace the importance of personal relationships throughout our entire supply chain.”

Robin added: “Andy has the company’s interests ingrained in him. He played a major role in writing and embedding our core values into the business. Fifteen years of working together along with two years of planning mean we have every confidence Andy will expand the business and allow me to work on the group and our strategy.”
