Stephen Fenby, MD of Midwich Group Plc, said: “On behalf of the Board, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tony for the contribution he has made to Midwich’s success over the last six years. Tony helped prepare the Group for its IPO in 2016 and its subsequent establishment as a public company. It has been a pleasure to work alongside Tony and I wish him well for the future.
“I am delighted that Stephen has agreed to join the Group and I am confident that his recent experience with growing and managing international businesses will be of great benefit to Midwich as we continue to expand our footprint across the globe.”
