Management Makeover Sees Hewden Prepare For The Future


Last month’s takeover of Interlift by Hewden has seen a management makeover that has installed Mike Omond, Edward Carr and Kevin Chalmers in key operational roles. Omond arrives from Speedy to take up a brand new position as plant operations director, Carr leaves Select to come on board as operations director for cranes and Chalmers, former Interlift owner and director, is the new operations director for lifting solutions.

The trio bring to Hewden a broad range of experience and knowledge which CEO Adrian Murphy is clearly delighted about. He said: “Mike, Edward and Kevin all bring a tremendous amount of expertise, innovative thinking and leadership qualities to Hewden. There’s never been a more exciting time to be involved in this business.  We’re investing in our people, our processes and our products to be the leading on-site solutions provider in the UK.  With these new appointments, we’re in a better position to achieve those strategic goals.”

Omond, for example, has worked in plant hire since he was 16 years old. He’s been previously employed by a number of blue chip companies before leading Speedy Services as its managing director. Carr, a mechanical engineering graduate, specialised in tower crane operations with Laing O’Rourke before joining Hewden and will now look after mobile crane operations in his new role.
