Long time managing director at Raleigh UK Mark Gouldthorp is to step aside from March 1st as the firm implements a new focus on its Accell Group synergies.
Having just invested significantly in its UK headquarters, Raleigh is now to restructure its senior ranks with a new management Team focused on maximising the opportunities for synergy that exist across all areas of the business.
This team will be jointly led by Pippa Wibberley, Sales and Marketing Director of Raleigh UK and Benjamin Huguet who currently runs Winora Group operations across France and Spain.
“We are very excited about this new phase and everyone at Raleigh UK is looking forward to developing the business strengths we get from being a member of the Accell Group. Most importantly we will be focused on delivering a best in class service and product proposition to our partner dealers.” Pippa Wibberley, Sales and Marketing Director – Raleigh UK Ltd.
“We want to ensure that Raleigh UK and its customers benefit in every way possible from being part of the Accell Group and believe that this new, dynamic organisational structure is the best way to make this happen. This marks a very exciting new phase of the development of Raleigh UK,” said Rene Takens, himself the outgoing CEO of the Accell Group.
