Broadcast hire and projects specialists, Presteigne, has announced the appointment of George Dickson as the company’s new CEO as part of a planned transition.
Dickson takes over from Adrian Young and brings with him over twenty years’ international experience within the rental industry’s support services sector with Aggreko, supporting major events.
Commenting on the appointment, Young said: “The plan agreed with the board over the last 12 months has always been for me to hand over once the right senior management team was in place, but also, importantly, when the right person to lead the next stage of Presteigne’s development was identified.”
Presteigne’s Chair, Martin Andersen added:” Now that George is in place, with his engineering background, proven managerial experience, expertise in rental and major events in particular, that time has come.”
Andersen paid tribute to Young’s contribution, saying: “He has built a successful business track record in the sector and, importantly, over the past few years he has recruited an experienced, industry-respected senior management team who are specialists in their individual areas, and cemented several key international partnerships.”
On taking over at Presteigne, Dickson commented, “My thanks first of all must go to Adrian for handing over a business in such good shape. I’m looking forward to building on our current success and leading Presteigne into the next important growth stage; particularly a step change in brand marketing and a greater awareness of our specialist areas. Over and above dry hire, dedicated divisions for Projects & Managed Services, Audio & Comms and RF & Specialist Cameras are all now in place, highly regarded and headed by experts in their field. I am genuinely excited to be joining Presteigne and believe that I can bring a wealth of relevant experience and demonstrable success. I’m looking forward to working with the heads of the individual specialist divisions and existing and new international partners, to drive significant growth in 2023 and beyond.”
