Wireless temperature monitoring specialist Monika has announced a restructuring of its UK business. The move has seen managing director Simon Frost part ways with the company.
Monika says that its business grew 30% globally in its last financial year, while it is forecasting similar expansion in 2017 amid wider plans for continued growth in key territories and regions around the world. The restructure will involve changes to the way the company is governed and run on a day-to-day basis, it said.
Monika will continue to operate through regional offices in Dubai and Melbourne and through representation elsewhere. As a result, its Technical Facility is being expanded under its technical manager, Simon Wood, and has been relocated in new premises adjacent to the Brook Park, Rearsby HQ.
It added that the UK operations have now been restructured to focus on sales and customer service. The changes see UK managing director, Simon Frost, depart the business.
Tim Gamble, founder and executive chairman of Monika, said: “In an effort to sustain the significant growth that we have experienced over the past two years across the Monika business globally, we are implementing an internal business restructure. Regrettably, the role of UK managing director is not appropriate to this new structure and therefore we can confirm that Simon Frost is no longer with the business. We would like to thank Simon for his significant contribution to the ongoing success of the business and wish him all the very best as he takes on new opportunities.”
He added: “2017 is set to be an exciting year for Monika, as we look to further develop our systems and services, continuing to deliver the exceptional support and knowledge of wireless temperature monitoring and total food safety solutions demanded by our customers around the world.”
Monika’s UK sales will be driven by Rag Hulait who has been promoted to UK director of sales following 20 years with the business. As part of the changes Mark Millership has also been appointed as group finance director.
