As part of his wider plans to launch a national waste management consultancy, Julian will continue to work with the Taylor Group on a consultative basis.
Mark Jenkins, who has reported in to Julian for the last three years, has been appointed to the role of UK Sales Director and will work closely with Julian until the end of March.
On departing the business, Julian comments: “Taylor has been a fantastic experience and a second home for many years however I leave knowing that the future of the business is now in safe hands following the full appointment of the senior management team. Mark Jenkins is an asset to the business and I have no doubt that the Taylor brand will continue to grow under his sales leadership. I now look forward to growing my own business and believe that Taylor will be a key part of that over the next 12 months.”
Julian joined Taylor in 1997 where he worked as UK Sales Manager before being appointed to the role of Managing Director at Envac UK, the UK’s only underground automated waste collection company. He re-joined Taylor in 2012 after the business was acquired by prominent environmental investors Sullivan Street Partners and Oakfield Capital Partners, and continued to expand the manufacturer’s UK market share as Sales and Marketing Director.
Brendan Murphy, Taylor’s Chief Executive, adds: “Julian is a skilled professional who has proved to be a valued member of the senior management team and a passionate ambassador for the company. I know he will be sadly missed as a colleague and friend and on behalf of myself and everyone at Taylor I wish him all the best in his new venture.”
