Nick Uwins has been appointed managing director, promoted from his former role of sales and engineering director. With over 28 years of fire industry experience, he replaces the company founder Oliver North, who led the business since its establishment in 2008. North will now fulfil an official advisory role for Rosenbauer as well as pursuing new challenges outside of the fire sector.
Ian Robertshaw has taken up the post of operations director, from his previous role as
service director, while Nina Robertshaw – who has been with the firm since February 2017 – has taken the role of head of finance and administration.
Uwins said: “Rosenbauer UK has formed a well-earned reputation for delivering first-class technology and service, alongside an unrivalled culture among our employees. These internal appointments will therefore ensure consistency during this period of change, as Oliver steps back from the fore.
“Having been a part of the team since January 2016 it’s a pleasure to now be leading the company, and I look forward to fulfilling the contracts which we have secured over the past few months whilst continuing our current increase in front line vehicle and equipment technology.”
North added: “Combined, Nick, Ian and Nina have wide-reaching experience, knowledge and expertise, and I look forward to maintaining my involvement within an advisory capacity, as the company continues through its current phase of growth. It has been an honour to drive the organisation to where it is today and I know the new senior leadership team will continue to drive quality and efficiency.”
