Holmes leaves Contico

Contico's commercial director, Vernon Holmes, is standing down after 38 years with the company.

He has decided that, following the successful transition of ownership following the company's acquisition by Robert Scott and Sons in 2012, the time is now right to move on and to look at new challenges within the industry. “I leave Contico on 30 June 2013 after 38 fantastic years with the company,” he said. “Over the past 15 months I have done my best to professionally pass over the Contico business to the directors of Robert Scott and the time is now right for me to move on to new and hopefully exciting opportunities within the industry. The Contico brand is now in very safe hands and the future of the company secured.”

Alastair Scott, marketing and sales director at Robert Scott, said: “It has been a great pleasure to work alongside Vernon over the past 15 months; he has been invaluable in managing the transition of ownership and has worked tirelessly to contribute to the turn round of the Contico brand. We are very sorry to see Vernon go but understand his wish to look for new challenges and we wish him the very best in any new venture he pursues.”
